Besides those two reports, there is the "AdSense Overview" report which lets you get a high-level summary of key AdSense metrics. While on this tab, you can easily see the total estimated revenue from your AdSense account.

The AdSense earnings estimate displayed in Google analytics might not match with the actual earnings in your AdSense account because Analytics only track AdSense for content ad units, and do not include link units, search boxes, mobile ads, or any other AdSense products.

I hope this helps.

To see the AdSense reports in Google Analytics:

==> Sign in to your Analytics account.
==> From the Analytics home, navigate to the account, property, and view linked to AdSense.
==> Select the Reporting tab.
==> From the left navigation, click Behavior then Publisher.
