This paper suggests a conditional sequential test for the equality of two binomial proportions. The test is a sequential analog of Fisher's exact test. A numerical example is given and the new test is compared with other tests, both sequential and fixed sample size. The results indicate that the conditional test is easy to use and that it has desirable test properties, even when truncated after a prespecified number of observations. An appendix shows how to compute the exact properties of the test.
