This paper aims to propose and implement the Multistep Modified Reduced Differential Transform Method (MMRDTM) to find solution of Nonlinear Schrodinger Equations (NLSEs). Through the proposed technique, we replaced the nonlinear term in the NLSEs by the corresponding Adomian polynomials prior to applying the multistep approach. Thus, we can obtain solutions for the NLSEs in an easier way with less complexity. In addition, the solutions can be approximated more accurately over a longer time frame. We considered several NLSEs and illustrate the features of these solutions in the form of graphs in order to show the power and accuracy of the MMRDTM.
