    John has been appointed (as) class monitor.

    John has been appointed (as) class monitor.

    Which is the more common version, the one with 'as' or without 'as'? Which is the preferred version?

    Thanks.

    They are both OK, as is "as a class monitor".

    As Bhaisahab said, they're both fine. I personally prefer simply "John has been appointed class monitor" in the same way that we say "He has been elected President", "Mr Smith has been appointed Director [of the company]".
