Goodness of fit tests based on generalized minimum Chi square are developed for the gamma and exponential distributions. The power of these tests has been found for several alternative families of distributions by utilizing the asymptotic non-null distribution of the test statistics. The tests behave very well for the types of alternatives considered here. Applications to some failure data of Proschan 1963 are included for illustrative purposes. Author
