I am studying for CCNA certificate and wanted to know the actual difference between Hub-and-spoke and Star topologies. Could somebody explain me this as it looks identical to me.

As already said in comments, they are the same.

I always prefer to use "star" to describe the topology to avoid any confusion with ethernet hub. Otherwise you might find yourself writing "The hub is a router and the spokes are hubs."
