Tomar and Coger can mean the same in most countries, but in a lot of them coger is just used in a vulgar way to mean the action of have sex, so if you are in spain for example you can say "voy a coger la manzana" (im going to pick/grab the apple), but in Venezuela for example that would be a weird phrase, something like "I would have sex with the apple", try to avoid the "coger" if you are unsure how is used in X country
Well, tomar has a lot of meanings in Spanish, for example: tomar café, drink coffee, tomar asiento like take a seat or sit down, tomar un examen like give an exam, tomar un taxi , take a taxi.Coger is quite similar to grab o agarrar for example: Deberías coger bien los libros pues se te van a caer. Coger also mean to have sex.
