WRONG:

AS BEST AS


RIGHT:

AS BEST


You can try to be as good as you can be, but it's not standard to say that you do something “as best as you can.” You need to eliminate the second “as” when “good” changes to “best.” You can try to do something as best you can. You can also do the best that you can (or even better, the best you can).


Unlike asbestos removal, “as best as” removal is easy, and you don’t have to wear a hazmat suit.
