Help with the DSGET command

Having some trouble with this command. Supposedly the command should be typed as follows
dsget user  UserDN -memberof [-expand]
I've tried many variations of this and none have brought back anything.
One thing not sure about is what to put in for my domain name. In Active Directory Users and Computers it is shown as "zoom.local"
I have a user named c so I have tried
dsget user c zoom -memberof [-expand]
plus several variations of this. Could someone please tell me exactly how the command should be typed? Thanks.

Thanks, mgh,
I enter the command dsget user c
and get target object for this command had incorrect format.
u have to use the DN (Distinguished Name)
if your user "c" is living in the "Users" container of your.domain.local then use:
dsget user cn=c,cn=users,dc=your,dc=domain,dc=local zoom -memberof [-expand]
