This paper deals with the estimation of location and scale parameters of the exponential distribution based on top-k-list of a sequence of observations from a two parameter exponential distribution. The minimum variance unbiased estimates of the location and scale parameters are given. Some comparisons of the variances of these estimates with respect to that of the kth record values are given.
