The distribution of the likelihood ratio test statistic to test the equality of several one or two‐parameter Exponential distributions either for censored or non‐censored samples has been studied by several authors. These statistics are of interest in many areas, namely in reliability and lifetime studies. We propose several near‐exact distributions for these statistics, which provide very accurate but yet very manageable approximations to the exact distribution, much adequate for practical purposes.
