SQL Server using Web Developer

OK, I am very new to this area.  My situation is this:  I was just granted access to a test server and I am trying to test it out.  What software do I need? Management Studio/Visual Web Developer/Visual Studio, etc...?  I am not sure the difference on what these do.  I can only get software versions of 2005.  Thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Since you mentioned that you would be doing development activity, then Management Studio would help you out.
