I don't see any reason not to start with Google.  The links provided represent good alternatives if you didn't want to use Google or want to diversify.  Much of duz's good common sense approach together with much of the info at the Learning Center link he provided would be applicable to these alternatives as well.

"can't locate it at the moment, probably one of the other guys here has the link if i had to guess though"
Sorry, bruno.  Google offers some great tools and info resources, but I'm not familiar with that one.

The actual highest bid is known only to the client but you can see your average ad position per keyword. Position is determined by your rank number compared to any competitor's rank number and the rank number is defined as the keyword's maximum CPC multiplied by the keyword's CTR.  When you choose a maximum CPC for your keywords Google's 'Traffic Estimator' will give you the estimated average ad position per keyword and this will be based on your maximum CPC and the average CTR for the keyword.
