"Like" introduces clauses (i.e. no including a verb verb): like you, like my bird, etc.

"As" introduces sentences (i.e. including a verb): as my mother does, as my husband sleeps

I think this grammar rule has came up several times in the forum...

Cheers

I also read the same rules as you guys mentioned...but my GMAT teacher said As your teacher, I teach you is correct. To indicate that 2 items compared are one and the same we use As.

Can someone show some light on this??
