Synchronous generally means blocking calls, main advantage is knowing if the call was successfully delivered or not, main disadvantage is that should the response take some time then the caller is blocked from doing any other work
asynchronous is generally non-blocking, is a response is needed you get it some other way later on, main advantage and disadvantage is probably just the opposite of above
