full wave rectifier will rectify both the positive and negative half cycles of the input supply. half wave will rectify only the positive or negative half depending on the polarity of supply. do check the output waveforms of these rectifiers for more clarity. consult any basin electronics book. here is a rough sketch though |dw:1328281181243:dw|

The ripple frequency for a full wave rectifier is twice the ripple frequency of a half wave rectifier consequently making it easier to filter using capacitors. The average DC value is more using fullwave with all other conditions being equal.
