In this paper, the modified simplest equation method is successfully implemented to find travelling wave solutions of the generalized forms $B(n,1)$ and $B(-n,1)$ of Burgers equation. This method is direct, effective and easy to calculate, and it is a powerful mathematical tool for obtaining exact travelling wave solutions of the generalized forms $B(n,1)$ and $B(-n,1)$ of Burgers equation and can be used to solve other nonlinear partial differential equations in mathematical physics.
