Is there a way rather than using mean value theorem [which is used to test whether there is a solution on a closed interval to the equation] ?

My point is, it doesn't matter what point you choose. If you are lucky enough(which you are with a high probability because troubles are not very probable), that initial guess will be good enough to give you the solution with desirable accuracy in a good number of steps.

Sorry for my English.

But if you want to have an educated guess, you can try to draw(or imagine!!!) the graph of the function and see where are the zeroes. This way you can have a very good guess but it doesn't garuantee that the steps will be fewer because sometimes you get far from the solution and reach it again. So just make a guess.
