Abstract: This paper is an exploration of two ideas in the study of closed classes: the $ A$-complexity of a space $ X$ and the notion of good spaces (spaces $ A$ for which $ \mathcal{C}(A) = \overline{\mathcal{C}(A)}$). A variety of formulae for the computation of complexity are given, along with some calculations. Good spaces are characterized in terms of the functors $ CW_A$ and $ P_A$. The main result is a countable upper bound for $ \Sigma A$-complexity when $ A$ is a good space.
