The purpose of the "Do I Know This Already?" quiz is to help you to decide what parts of this chapter to use. If you already intend to read the entire chapter, you do not necessarily need to answer these questions now.
The 12-question quiz, derived from the major sections in the "Foundation Topics" portion of the chapter, helps you to determine how to spend your limited study time.
Table 13-1 outlines the major topics discussed in this chapter and the "Do I Know This Already?" quiz questions that correspond to those topics.

The goal of self-assessment is to gauge your mastery of the topics in this chapter. If you do not know the answer to a question or are only partially sure of the answer, you should mark this question wrong for purposes of the self-assessment. Giving yourself credit for an answer you correctly guess skews your self-assessment results and might provide you with a false sense of security.

Best effort unicast
A reliable unicast
A reliable multicast
Which of the following are advantages to using EIGRP as a routing protocol?
Reduced bandwidth consumption
Support for other Layer 3 protocols
Increased vendor support

What can be done to prevent feedback loops during redistribution between EIGRP autonomous systems?
Disabling the query process
Manually configuring the query holdtime

The answers to this quiz are found in Appendix A, "Answers to Chapter 'Do I Know This Already?' Quizzes and Q&A Sections." The suggested choices for your next step are as follows :
6 or less overall score Read the entire chapter. This includes the "Foundation Topics" and "Foundation Summary" sections, and the "Q&A" section at the end of the chapter.
79 overall score Begin with the "Foundation Summary" section, and then go to the "Q&A" section at the end of the chapter. If you have trouble with these exercises, read the appropriate sections in "Foundation Topics."
10 or more overall score If you want more review on these topics, skip to the "Foundation Summary" section, and then go to the "Q&A" section at the end of the chapter. Otherwise, move to the next chapter.
