CSA and CASP do cover different areas, I'd say. CASP is more Security Engineering, and CSA seems to be more specifically Security Analysis. It could be that there is an assumption about career progression, where Analysts are more entry level positions.
But to add to my original question, I am starting the Cisco scholarship CyberOps at the end of this year, and they haven't yet released any books, so if CSA+ is substantially similar, I might look at that in advance to prepare (probably just watch some videos, maybe do some labbing with packet captures and the like).
It's not so much about the paper, it's more about the knowledge.

Thanks for bumping this. Now that I have both, I can give some feedback. I thought the CyberOPS was more challenging than the Beta CSA+, (The second exam, the first exam you could probably walk in and take with SEC+ level knowledge.) There were more specific questions around header formats in SECOPS vs being able to parse some info and reverse engineer it in the COMPTIA lab.
