Hi, I use matlab for scientific computing and I use symbolic toolbox as well. I read some matlab books such as Gilat's, but most of the times I have to find something by searching matlab's help or searching on internet. When I post questions here, many times people give me methods that I did not read in the matlab's book. So, I am looking for a comprehensive matlab book, so that I should not go everytime to internet to find answer. Can someone suggest such book or comment?

My suggestion is to go to the MathWorks book reference page and filter by application and language. The application is very important, as what you need to learn is extremly different when you e.g. do signal processing vs. computational biology vs. portfolio optimization.

I don't think it would be possible for one author to put everything Matlab has to offer in a single book.
Every one develops their own methods in time. And the best way to learn is by figuring things out by yourself. A tutorial book can only give you the basics. The rest comes with experience...
A good book will teach you how to find things out using Matlab's help efficiently.
I used a German one by Ottmar Beucher. I don't know if there are any English translations, but he includes a bunch of exercises that involve solving problems using Matlab's help.

Thanks for your help. But I don't understand German. Can anyone post comments?

He wrote books in English, too: Introduction to MATLAB and Simulink
I'm not sure if it's exactly the same one as I used, but the description says it has exercises...

The reference is to a book "Computational Physics: A Guide For Beginners Looking To Speed Up Their Computation" that appears to have been written by the poster.
