There's a lengthy article here that talks about a lot of what you'll see:

You can use DBMS_XPLAN to pretty up the output of the PLAN_TABLE (which helps make it easier to understand):
http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/9i/dbms_xplan.php

They would be two places to start reading to get an overview of what you're seeing, to start with.

I suggest you start with the online docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e16638/ex_plan.htm#PFGRF009

If you have specific questions after reviewing the docs, just ask.
