    as

    Hello,

    1. She is as good a cook as me.

    2. She is a cook as good as me.

    I know the sentence 1 is fine, but I would like to ask whether if the second is OK or not.

    Thanks.

    Re: as

    We can say, "As a cook she's as good as I am", which has a slightly different meaning.

    It could be used with a sarcastic negative meaning - "As a brain surgeon, Rover is as good as I am".
