What are the differences between TIMSS and PISA?

This Tuesday the new TIMSS -results will be published, one week later the OECD will publish it’s new PISA-results. But what are the differences between those two comparisons? I found this handy overview in this Cambridge report (and they added PIRLS too):

pisa-timss-comparison-1
pisa-timss-comparison-2

If you want to compare countries, these links I collected are also a great place to start.
