'Regard as' is the correct idiom.

Consider (without the 'as') is the correct idiom. Correct sentence using consider:

Many scholars consider the pre-Hispanic civilizations of Peru (NO AS) the most impressive in South America.

i am quoting this from Sahil's note...that I downloaded from this site

"Use of Consider: When ‘consider’ means ‘regard as’, ‘as’ should not be present with ‘consider’ in the sentence. Consider must directly be followed by the sentence without an infinitive like ‘to be’ etc."

I consider this to be helpful

consider goes with to be
regard is coupled with as

"Consider + as" is always considered wrong in GMAT.
"Regards + as" is correct idiom.

Can u explain?

to be is passive.

You mean to say... CONSIDERED not CONSIDER can be followed by "to be". Or do you mean... "to be" is passive, so never use it.
