Try this: << NumericalMath`NLimit` N[Limit[Exp[n]/n^3, n->Infinity]] I think mathematica outputs the expression as it is if the limit value of the expression is not finite. N prceeding the limit will force mathematica to show numerical value. May be there is a better explanation to it that experts can clarify!
