Are ab and a the same thing here? With ab used before a vowel and a before a consonant? Or does it have to do with where you're from v where you're presently coming from?

They are the same word, yes.

Before a vowel, you must use "ab". Before a consonant, you can use either.

Ab is used when the following word starts with a vowel. There are a few other words like that will likely pop up in future lessons.
