    How or What?

    If someone told me something that I want to agree with, should I say that is how I understand it, too, or that is what I understand it, too? Thank you.

    That's what I think.
    That's what I think, too.
    I agree with you.
    That's exactly what I think.
    Right, I agree.

    Possible, but less common:
    That's how I understand it too.

    These are correct, expressions you'd use in conversation.

    To be very formal:
    I am of the same opinion.

    Wishing you success

    or you can simply say.."truer words were never spoken" that means you strongly agree with what the other person has just said. Example: "I find that the earlier I get up, the better the day I have." Reply: "Truer words were never spoken. The morning hours are definitely the best hours of the day.

    I am convinced Edward's answers are still much simpler.

    That is how I understand it too.

    That is what I understand it too.
    That is what I understand too.

    The above two expression would be correct in the appropriate context.
