Hi! Is there a "d'ici..." Version to express by now? As in, "By now you should be on chapter 5 of your book" or "You should be finished by now", etc.
This question relates to:French lesson "By + [point in time] = d'ici ..."

There isn't a fit all expression in French for by now. It will depend on the context.
In the examples you give I would say:
" À l'heure qu'il est/ maintenant tu devrais être au chapitre 5 de ton livre. "
"Tu aurais dû finir à l'heure qu'il est/maintenant."
Hope this helps!
