Question.
when comparing IP4 Vs IP6 in the book, the chapter 13 seems to be missing alot of detials.

In chapter 3, the book goes into great length to finding the submets, and how we got there and were we go. Chapter 13 does not do that.
Was that doen on purpose?
Should we epxect very few questions on IP6, (subnetting etc)

for now, and I mean only for now, IPv6 objectives are somewhat light, but you need to understand the addressing types and tunneling types, but that's about it.
This is all about to change and IPv6 will be a full blown objectives, probably larger or at least as large as IPv4.
We don't subnet with IPv6 so it would be impossible to get a IPv6 subnetting question.
Understand the basics of IPv6, the various type of addressing (anycast, multicast), and the routing protocols used, and the types of tunneling.
Oh, the loopback addres for IPv4 is 127.0.0.1, right? Every interface in IPv6 has a loopback of ::1
