on the GMAT, consider is never to be in the form of considered as.

He was considered as the best. WRONG
He was considered the best. CORRECT

I found this description somewhere on this forum. Can anyone give me a REAL GMAT question where consider took this form?

consider that + sentence
>> I consider that the weather will be fine.
If you have any questions

Both consider to be and consider as are wrong

Consider X, Y is the correct idiom.

I believe 'considered to be' is correct.

He is considered to be the greatest hockey player in history.

Considered as is definitely wrong. This is touched upon in ManhattanGMAT SC book.

here's an example of the 'consider' rule:

Acid rain is considered not yet so serious a problem in the West as in the East, where hundreds of lakes have been rendered sterile by increased acidity.
(b) considered not so serious a problem yet in the West as
(c) not yet considered so serious a problem in the West as it is
(d) not considered as yet the serious problem in the West that it is
(e) not as yet considered that serious a problem in the West as

If the Object complement is far away from object, use consider to be.

can someone elaborate on this?

when I think of 'consider to be', I think of it in the following constructions-

The biologists consider X to be superfluous.
OR
The biologist considers X to be superfluous.
OR
Jack's peers consider him to be a champion chess player.
