Security Exam before the SAA

I know you mention the Security Specialism is meant for those who have passed an associate exam. I’m half way through the Associate Solutions Architect and it will take me a good month to get to exam standard I suspect. How difficult would it be to do the security course then the exam before passing the Associate exam? (I know it depends, but I have SOME security background, although not hands on technical) ….Any thoughts?

As I remember …. For speciality exams (like for Professional) Associate Level Exam is a Prerequisite to make booking. Not sure whether Cloud Practitioner is OK too. But from the practical viewpoint Security Exam is much more difficult than Associate Level exams.
