First, check the status of the AC compressor. Make sure you can turn it by hand while the clutch is disengaged and the engine is off. You should turn it several turns, just to make sure it's free. If the AC compressor isn't turning freely it's most likely faulty. If it does turn freely, check the belt tensioner to make sure it has enough tension to keep the belts from slipping.

Borrow a digital DC voltmeter, attach the meter to the positive and negative battery posts, if the battery is healthy and fully charged it should read 12.68 volts, now start the engine and monitor the voltmeter, if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is healthy the meter should read 14.2 volts (give or take .3). If the voltage fails to reach that goal the alternator is probably faulty.
