The notion of differential transform was firstly introduced and applied to electrical circuits by J. Zhou, [4]. In the present paper we apply the differential transform method to solve initial values problems for nonlinear differential equations. This method can be easy implemented on the computer because of the recurrence relation established. The chosen example in this paper is proved to have an exact solution. A Maple program is also included. The nonlinear differential equation solved here for a initial value problem was also solved in the papers [2] and [3] for some boundary value problems.
