NonlinearRegress giveve more information then NonlinearFit, inlcuding
replacement rules for the parameters.



data =Table[{t,3.2*Exp[-0.5*t]  +(Random[]-.5)}, {t,0,2,.2}];

BestFitParameters/.NonlinearRegress[data, a Exp[b t], {t},{a,b},
RegressionReport -> BestFitParameters]

{a -> 3.16783, b -> -0.512375}

f[t_]= a Exp[b t]/.%

 0.512375 t
