If I register a trademark for one class does it cover all goods?

When I register a trademark for one class of goods or services, does this automatically give me exclusive rights to use the trademark for all goods and services in that class?

No - when you file a trademark application you must specify the goods and/or services under each class of your application. You must have at least an honest intent to use your trademark on the goods/services you nominate, so, only select all products or services within a class if you do honestly intend on applying your trademark to them all.
