SQL*Plus

When you are new, definitely start with that one.

And a basic text editor once you start with more complicated queries to copy/paste from and into SQL*Plus.

If, after a few weeks of practice, you know what is really going on on the SQL level, then you can look for something that takes care of some of the more mundane tasks. Like dragging and dropping table and column names into the script and such niceties.

For example, every tool has it's own somewhat different connect dialog. Once you know hot you connect with SQL*Plus, all of them make sense. If you only know how to connect with one specific tool you have much less chances of figuring out the connect dialog of another tool.

For example, in order to become an employee in a certain company, you might be required to know how to drive a car.

What do you think: will they ask you "do you know how to drive a car?" (i.e. do you have a driving licence), or will they ask you "do you know how to drive VW Golf (or Opel Omega or KIA Ceed or a_car_of_your_choice)?"

What I meant to say: if you *know* how to drive a car (i.e. use SQL), it doesn't matter which car it is (i.e. which tool you use to run SQL).

As far as I'm concerned, yes.

Another option might be, for example, the fact that this company chose Oracle Reports Developer as its main reporting tool and expects potential employees to master this tool. Now, not in 2 months. In that case, general knowledge of (PL/)SQL wouldn't be enough.
