2001 ford focus brake issue

i have a 2001 ford focus and suddenly the brakes stopped working i cant push the pedal down at all. i think the issue is the brake booster. is tere any way to test the booster to see if its actualy bad?

Check vacuum hose from manifold to booster .Brake pedal should drop when engine started if hard or air evacuated prior to that .

Also seen this caused on some cars when front flex hose has collapsed inside and prevented brake fluid from returning and holding on the pads in calliper .
