Get your battery charged and get the car started.
Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. Voltage should read 14.5 volts. If it reads 12 volts, the alternator is not charging.

Most of the major chain auto parts stores will check the voltage for you or, if you've removed the alternator already, will check it for operation.

Good luck,
