The fomrula is:

as big as
as small as

etc..

In other words:
as + adjective + as

Consider the following sentence:

The Mercedes is as beautiful as the Mazda.

Here what we want to say is that:

The Mercedes is beautiful, and the Mazda is also beautiful.

We wanted to say that the Merecedes and the Mazda are the same in "Beauty".

Another example:

The Toshiba costs US$ 3000. The Dell costs US$ 3000.

We say: The Toshiba is as expensive as the Dell.

As---as Expression in the Negative
------------------------------------

Example:

The village is clean. The town is not very clean.

We say:
The village is cleaner than the town.

This expression can also be expressed as follows:

The town is not as clean as the village.
