An alternative approximation scheme has been used in solving the Schrödinger equation to the more general case of exponential screened Coulomb potential, V(r) = −(a/r)[1 + (1 + br)e−2br]. The bound state energies of the 1s, 2s and 3s-states, together with the ground state wave function are obtained analytically upto the second perturbation term.
