Why is the self paced training for Professional and Admin the same (high level) courses?

I just finished the Professional Certification, and used the online (self paced) courses listed in the study guide. I am now needing to quickly get the Administrator Certification, again with self-study. I see that the study guide has the exam same curriculum.

Is that intentional? Is there other training and/or documentation I could read to get a deeper understanding required for the administrator test? I feel like the training material provided is pretty high level, and won't suffice. Also, the documentation site in the Help Center is also pretty high level, with "quick looks" and "quick guides" for different things, but I can't seem to find a document or group of documents that cover the product soup to nuts, like I see for most IAM solutions.

I have the same question, can you please publically explain why the study guides are exactly the same?

Did anyone ever get an answer to this?  I am also interested on the Admin exam.

Thanks

PM to answer a public question is the opposite of helpful.  Way to go Okta...
