What is the difference between a release candidate and a beta version?

I've heard that beta comes first then I've heard that the release comes first. I'd like to know which is correct.

In all cases, the beta version comes first, then some bugs are solved and several release candidates are offered (sometimes referred to as gamma or delta)

The beta always comes first, the release candidate or RC is when the software is almost ready to be transform into 'gold' version, which means it is ready to be shipped.
