hi,
    In most of the cases we are now using REST api and in some cases it is mandatory to use soap api check the below links you will gwt good idea...

It all depends upon requirement as what you want to achieve.

If it is for light weight application we prefer REST as REST is light and we can construct the request as per our requirement.

SOAP is heavy and it has a predefined structure(Envelope,header,body),however it is more secure as you can sign the request with digital certs and it requires User name/password combination to make the call.

As per the docs,you can go to the Integration docs of salesforce.It has got all the docs required you to learn about Webservices in salesforce at the below link :-

Hope this helps !!
