Recently Cesari and Bowman  have demonstrated the applicability of the alternative method to obtain approximate solutions of nonlinear equations. They provided numerical approximations of solutions of two point nonlinear boundary value problems. Our purpose here is to point out how these approximations may be improved upon without much additional effort. For illustrative purposes we discuss one of their examples.
