''I finished studying for the tomorrow exam'' OR ''I finished to study for the tomorrow exam'' ? Can be any of these sentences used? If not, why?

"I finished studying for the exam tomorrow" OR " I finished studying for tomorrow's exam" are the correct ways of saying this.

What about ''I finished to study for tomorrow's exam''? Is it correct too?

hi
"I am finished to study ..." is wrong to say coz some verb always takes gerund after them; therefore, using infinitive would be wrong.

thanks

regards

For some verbs like "remember, forget, stop, try", there is a subtle difference in the use of gerund and to-infinitive after them. ;-)
