consider [#permalink] New post 17 Jun 2007, 21:14
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.

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.

Not sure about 'considered as'??

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

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.
