Due to importance of the slip effect on modeling the boundary layer flows, symmetries and exact solution investigations have been introduced in this paper for studying the effect of a slip boundary layer on the stretching sheet through a porous medium. The exact solution of the investigating model is obtained in term of exponential via the generalized Exp-Function method. This solution satisfies the boundary conditions. Finally, the effect of parameters on the velocity field is studied.
