I have read about when is it appropriate to use Like and when As, but I stilll don't quite get it. I was wondering if sombody can explain the nuances to me...

My understanding so far:
1. Use like when comparing two nouns and As when comparing two verbs
2. Use As to introduce a clause vs Like to introduce a phrase

Use of examples would be appreciated.

Thanks!
