An SDK is more than an API with docs. I was going to muster a set of URLs from my favorite online resources, but there's a better way.

Go to Google and ask it
define: sdk

and it will give you a heap of links to definitions that basically agree that an SDK (Software Developers/Development Kit) is code (typically one or more APIs) plus tools (such as an Integrated Development Environment) plus documentation.
