    the same as

    1 Today is as much for him as any day in his life.
    2 Today is as same as any day in his life.
    3 Today is the same as any day in his life.

    Teachers, which sentence is right? In my opinion, the first one is wrong, in that "as much for him" doesn't make any sense. As for the second one, I am not sure if " as same as" has been used correctly. I think the third one is right.

    Re: the same as

    You could also say 'Today is the same as any other day in his life'.

    Re: the same as

    No. You've omitted the word "any" before "other" and "is" doesn't work there.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: the same as

    Since you seem to have come across 'much', you can say, "Today is much the same as any day in his life", which means "almost the same", "pretty much the same" (which is just adding more words).
