I had been knowing Alex since we were at college together.
Is this sentence grammatically correct? If not, why?
Also, is it possible to use 'since' with past perfect?.

Re: Past Perfect
Yes, it's possible to think of a context. But you probably wouldn't use "since" in any usual construction with the past perfect. Would you like to give a sentence with 'since' that you aren't sure about. If so, try to include at least two events in the past to ensure that your past perfect tense is necessary.
