When somebody did something in the way that I had done it before, which sentence should I use?
1) You did it exactly like me.
2) You did it exactly as I did.

When somebody is in the same situation that I am right now (for example we are lost in the city) should I say:
3) You are in the same situation as I am.
4) You are in the same situation like me.
or may I use short forms (he is telling me about his situation and I am responding ):
5) So, you are as I am.
6) So, you are like me. ?

These are both fine.

When somebody is in the same situation that I am right now (for example we are lost in the city) should I say:
3) You are in the same situation as I am.
4) You are in the same situation like me.

#3 is OK, the others are not natural.
