VCAP6.5-DCV Design Exam Guide sanitized reference documents table

VCAP6.5-DCV Design reference documents

The new VCAP6.5-DCV Design exam guide contains a list of reference documents. This list is just a simple list of URLs and some of them are broken. I’ve sanitized the list a bit, fixed the broken URLs and included a document title to make the list easier to consume. For more information about the VCAP6.5-DCV Design exam, have a look here. Happy studying!
