    Default Help on a sentence structure

    Hello,

    I am writing an essay and I need a little bit of help.

    This is basically what I want to say.

    Researching thoroughly and knowing your target audience is equally important as the familiarity of the subject you are writing about.

    But, this is not how I want to phrase.

    I have two sentences below that I came up with. I think (1) is grammatically correct and (2) incorrect. My question is how can I fix (2), using “as equally important as ~” and also not using the word “imperative” ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums; "as equally important as" is incorrect, you can say "as important as" or "equally important".

    Thank you, sir.

    So...

    As important as the familiarity of the subject you are writing about is
    researching ~.

    Is this grammatically correct? I wasn't sure more about "As ~ as is ~" is not
    the right structure and I felt it is a weird sentence.
