As with underling, making marginal notes forces you think deeply about the material. It also gives your long-term memory time to absorb new information.

I'd like to know what is nuance difference between "as with underling" and "like underling"
Thank you in advance for your help.

    No difference really. (But 'underlining' makes more sense here than 'underling', which is a real word too, just not the one you want. :) )

    The main similarity is that both are the wrong word. :) I think you mean "underlining."

    "as with underling" = as in the case of underlining -> the objects are the same in these circumstances.
    "like underling" = similarly to underlining -> the objects are very similar.

    (I think you meed a metaphorical microscope to see the difference.)
