NetApp Certified Hybrid Cloud - Implementation Engineer (NS0-402)

When I was looking through the ‘Reference Document’ for the NetApp certifications (current link), the list of references that most interested me, was the list for ‘NetApp Certified Hybrid Cloud - Implementation Engineer (NS0-402)’. This certification does cover a vast range of  different products and technologies.
 
When I went through the reference links, some did not work (were old - a problem with IT certs in general, stuff goes out of date so quickly), some were duplicated, and some were way too broad to focus studies on; so I’ve reformed the references, removing duplicates and links that don’t work, and trying to put them in some order. The references have been separated them into three categories:
 
1) Blogs, White Papers and Other Articles
2) Documentation Sets
3) Broad References
