u need sleep to grow...but...
if i have a huge test tomorrow and stay up all night studying and i get about 14 hours worth of sleep tomorrow night it is that bad for the muscles i worked out today in the gym?

Adequately you need at least 8 hours of sleep for optimin muscle growth and repair. Trying to work it out and sleeping longer on the following day wont work. It simply doesnt work that way.
Hey man you've got a test tommorrow dont go screwing it up just because you busted azz in the gym. I mean one day will not kill you. sleep and get prepared for your test. thats your future man! In the end no matter of advice will desuade you from doing what your really goping to do. Its a matter of priorities. Good luck in your test!

i aggree its better to study and sleep a little less than the other way around
im wondering.. these 8 hours you need to sleep for recovery.. does it matter if you sleep them 8 hours straight or if you sleep 8 hours put together and wake up like 1-2 times every night?

what if you get say 1 or 2 hours of sleep around 6-8pm and 6-7 hours of sleep that night? will you still be building muscle effectively?
i usually take a nap after work and before the gym then go out.
also is it a good idea to take meal replacements before bed? i know you should take protein but all those carbs would get converted to fat you'd think if you take it before bed.

Sleep is good for the brain too bro. I have always found that taking the night before the test off (assuming you didnt procrastinate in prep for the exam) can be better than trying to pull an all nighter. I say get to sleep early...get your full 8 hours.

And to your question, it would be better to have a protein shake 45 minutes before bedtime to better aid your muscle recovery.
