    If it were me I'd listen to him.

    Can you tell me if the following sentences have the same meaning? If they are same, which type is usually used?

    1)If it were me, I'd listen to him. and If I were you, I'd listen to him.
    2)If you were to have studied your exam, you could have passed the class. and If you had studied your exam, you could have passed the class.

    Re: If it were me I'd listen to him.

    Use the second form of each sentence. The first forms are uncommon and sound strange (to me).
    In 1, you can use the first form if the other person is a third person, eg. "If it were me" for "If I were Jack", but not for "If I were you".
