In this paper, suggest anew two step iterative method for solving a nonlinear equation, which is derivative free by approximating a derivative in the iterative method by central difference with one parameter θ. The anew derivative free iterative method has a convergence of order four and computational cost the family requires three evaluations of functions per iteration. Numerical experiments show that the proposed a method is comparable to the existing method in terms of the number of iterations.
