Anybody please help me which I will choose.?
I was at same point a few days back where you are right now.
As it will consume time to build own framework to test rest APIs, so i had dropped this idea.
While choosing tool, I found Postman easy to learn and use. So far i am using it in different projects from 3-4 months now and it's good.
Which tools are most companys using ?
Different companies use different tools according to their team's capabilities. So we cannot say that if x company is using a tool then that tool is best to use.

For this you need to check the tutorials of whatever tool you choose.
What are the important point that i should be learn before starting with rest api ?
Answer of this question is broad and vary person to person. But you should be aware what are rest APIs , how these work, their implementation. behavior of results. Common type of APIs. etc
