Dunnett (1984) proposed a fixed sample-size procedure for selecting the best population among several Bernoulli experimental populations in comparison with a control Bernoulli population. Having as a reference point Dunnett's procedure (1984), we propose a closed sequential procedure that takes fewer observations but achieves the same probability of a correct selection as the original procedure.
