mixing sugar w/creatine
I'm a newb to all of this supplement stuff and I was wondering would mixing sugar with my creatine do any good? And if so how much to take or mix with it? Thanks for any advice

Yes it will help some, don't mix just plain old table sugar though. The sugar should be like Dextrose/Maltodextrin. Depending on the type of creatine you have, you'd be best off mixing the creatine and Dextrose/Maltodextrin into a post workout protein shake.
For some good mixing ratios, go to http://www.rellisfamily.com/abc/abc.htm and take the link for the PWO Shake Calculator. On top of the PWO shake ratios you get back, add 5-10g's of creatine.

gtxben is right, with plain creatine I like to mix it with welches grape juice, it will make it absorb better. Make sure you drink it right after training for best results

I agree w/ Popa.
welches is the best mix.
