Toward the end of the Mathematica book, in appendix A.9, is a list of 
the various methods.  If you are already familiar with numerical 
integration methods in general, then the brief descriptions should be 
helpful.  Personally, though, I rarely use NIntegrate for serious work. 
It is far too slow because it is such a general routine.  When I am 
really concerned about the speed or convergence of an integration 
routine, I program my own and use NIntegrate to check my work.
