Are the question in Dan Chisholm's comprehensive exams also contained in the Study Guide and Topic Exams? Or are they a different set of questions? Thanks.

All of the questions are developed in xml format and JDOM and XSLT are used to organize the questions into three exam sets: comprehensive, single topic, and study guide. The questions in all three sets are the same except for some minor differences. The single topic and study guide exam sets contain some optional material that does not appear in the comprehensive exams. The optional material that is omitted from the comprehensive exams tends to be very difficult.
The Study Guide exam set is organized based on the chapters of Mughal's exam study guide. Since that study guide does not cover assertions that material does not appear in the study guide exam set. However, assertions do appear in the single topic and comprehensive exam sets.

Thanks Dan. I appreciate the quick response from the source.
Also, thank you for working so hard to create a very challenging and instructional mock exam set. I've spread the word about it.
My SCJP 1.4 exam is scheduled for Saturday morning. Wish me luck.
I agree. Here's the link:
