The quickest way is to get it touch with the provider of the API.  They would typically have documentation on this.
What programming language will you be using to call the API?  PHP for instance is able wrap the SOAP calls into classes etc.

There should be a WSDL file somewhere that specifies the calls and returns

Hi  amazon4life,

If you have the WSDL, you can use the SoapUI test tool.
Just add the wsdl and you will see all functions and parameters.

But, it's possible that the provided functions are containing a general <Data> element or an <any>,
in that cast you still need to get info from the Api host.
