We apply He's polynomials coupled with the diagonal Padé approximants for solving various singular and nonsingular boundary value problems which arise in engineering and applied sciences. The diagonal Padé approximants prove to be very useful for the understanding of physical behavior of the solution. Numerical results reveal the complete reliability of the proposed combination.
