when we compare people , things , or events which are the same .

Examples : She is as tall as her mother 

                 He was as quiet as a mouse

not as + adjective +as

when we compare people , things , or events which are different .

Examples : The boys are not as tall as their father

when an adjective ends in consonant – vowel – consonant , we double the last letter and add er or est
