Car sounds like it wants to crank over but won't. What should I check to get it started?

We can't hear it so you have to describe what's happening. Is it cranking too slowly? One loud clunk but it won't crank? A light click from the starter relay? Have you tested the battery? What happens to the brightness of the head lights or dome light when you try to crank the engine?
