There are many different scenarios where the different items would become better than others. Just starting off with sight wards just to prepare yourself for any movement or ganks. Vision wards would be good for common ward locations to clear the ward and give you vision over it. Such as warding dragon to gain the sight and check for their ward there (which most people do ward). Oracles would be or hunting invisible people such a Twitch, Akali(shroud), Evelynn, and others. It would also be good if you are trying to gank and people keep backing off since it's warded. I would only advise if you are doing really well early game to buy an Oracle's just to kill their wards. Here is a link that would go more in depth of what I've just said (well I think so, I've never read the guide). http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/warding-helper-more-than-your-eyes-can-see-54337
Some of the most common ward locations include (in rough priority order):
There are many other spots that can be perfectly worthwhile for wards, but these are some of the most common. My rule of thumb is: look and see where enemies could approach you unseen. If there's an obvious path they can take to surprise and kill you, you should probably get a ward up there to give you advance warning.
Vision Wards can be very useful in a few situations:
Vision Wards are cheaper than Oracle Elixir, and if you die your investment isn't lost, although obviously you can only use them once.
