Use
like before a noun, as in:

• He's behaving as if he owns the place. ---- This sentence is a right one.


• He’s behaving like he owns the place. ---- This sentence is a wrong one.


Or


• You don't know him as I do. ---- This sentence is a right one.


• You don’t know him like I do. ---- This sentence is a wrong one.
