Compression test or Leakdown?

Would a good 'ole compression test tell me if all my cylinders were up to par. Or, do I need to do a leakdown?

And, if a compression test would do, what kind of compression reading would I be looking for? From my reading, it looks like consistancy is the key.

As far as tools required: Any pics of the tools needed/created to perform the leakdown/compression test?

Thanks!
