Default SA and SP exams

Hi .

Please, I need your help.

Supposedly , the SP material is contained in SA material exam. Then , would it be possible to study the material for SA and try to pass at the same time SA and SP exams ? I have seen that some people study both exams at the same time , but I do not know the degree of overlap.

Thanks !

I think the amount of overlap varies by specialism - but whatever it is, I think you need to study both SP and SA courses. You can do them at the same time though.

Thank you muppet. I was thinking about SP1 and SA1 . I am currently working at the field, and also studying for SP9 at the moment, and really , after reading a SP1 exam ,I think I could almost do 60% of it easily without studying. I have seen that Risk Management is around 30% of the exam, so that is quite an overlap for SP1 from SP9!
