Creatine is used in many different ways, and in the end, it comes down to preference.

If you are thinking about using Creatine, do a little research online, and then try out different methods for yourself, to see which work best.

Personally, I take a half a scoop 15-20 minutes before my workout with water, and then another half scoop mixed with gatorade, or whatever I feel like drinking during my workout.

You don't really need more than 5 grams per day.

Also make sure you stay WELL hydrated if you're going to be supplementing Creatine.
