Or you can use losetup and kpartx. I think this is easier and safer because you don't have to figure out the offsets or risk getting them wrong.
losetup first to make a block device that maps to the file.
# losetup -v -f sda.dd

This created:
/dev/mapper/loop0p1
/dev/mapper/loop0p2
/dev/mapper/loop0p3
