A quick trick you could try would be to rap on the starter body with a hammer, if this gets it to crank over, then you have a bad starter....

After that it's going to be time to get out the voltmeter and start checking some stuff......you would want to make sure the battery cables are clean

Don't rap too hard either. Just a gentle tapping. Aim for the rear of the starter just to the side of the center where the brushes of the motor are contacting the armature inside.
