Fitting transcendental equations using the built-in Fit command takes a
little bit of doing, and there is an example in section 3.8.1 of the
mathematica book with shows how to fit to Exp[a+b x].  You can also use
the NonlinearFit included in the add on packages.  The on-line help or
print "guide to standard add-on packages" shows how to use this
Remove the _nospam_ in the return address to respond.
