Adwords account setup

Hi Community, I am a total newbie trying to just set up an account.

All tutorials and articles I can find either keep repeating the same basic conceptual stuff about adwords, or completely skip several key steps in setup. Or, the resource is outdated.

So my question is, do I need a pre-existing url/website in order to set up an account? This information is required in the set up process I have found.

 And if yes, what if you want several different campaigns pointed to different websites why are you tying one particular website to the account? Nowhere does it explain this about getting started.

Totally confused here...

I just want to access the adwords interface to get familiar with it and learn, I am not doing any campaign yet.

Thank you if anyone can help.

On the first page of setup, you are seeing two sections that ask for an email and a website? Above it is a link that says "skip the guided setup". Click that and you won't have to enter a website.
