This paper features a survey of some recent developments in techniques for obtaining approximate analytical solutions of some nonlinear differential equations arising in various fields of science and engineering. Adomian's decomposition method is applied to some nonlinear problems, and some mathematical tools such as He's homotopy perturbation method and variational iteration method are introduced to overcome the shortcomings of Adomian's method. The results of some comparisons of these three methods appearing in the research literature are given. Copyright (C) 2009 Serdal Pamuk.
