    as with...so with

    Hi,
    Does this phrase as with..so with have exactly the same meaning and is exactly the same way used as the phrase : ...both ...and ?

    If not, please give me any example of its usage.

    Thanks!

    No, "as with" and "so with" don't have exactly the same meaning or usage.

    Sorry I explained it wrong.

    I mean whether the phrase " as with... so with..." has the same usage to " both ..and...". I have found somewhere such a note, but I am not sure it was correct.

    Hi, and welcome to Using English.

    I think you will need to give us an example sentence using the phrase you mean. I can't think of how you would use "as with... so with" in a sentence so I can't answer your question.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    How about:

    Changing the tipple didn't help - as with gin, so with rum: drunk after three glasses.
