C++ tech question with STL

What is the difference between a vector and a linked list.
When would you use one over the other?
I told him a linked list is good if you want to remove an item in the middle of the list. The vector is not as efficient in removing an item in the middle.
Am I correct?
Also, mentioned that a linked list is efficient at removing a contigous list of nodes.
Are there any other design decisions between the 2?
