    after AS >>> AS, you need to use s.th. for example (as much as possible) or ( as much as you can) or anything else.

    Matilda is right, but you should also say 'your work' rather than 'your works'. The plural form is only used to mean a body of work, as in 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.'

    Please speed-up your work as much as possible / as much as you can

    However, my intention is he has to complete works at the earliest. So, which one is correct in the above sentence

    They are both correct. They also have the same meaning, unless it would be 'possible' for him to speed up more than 'he can'
