How to memorize RFC3330 all prefix ?

You know in some cases you have no any tool to search for RFC specification(if someone know how to search RFC in Cisco Document Website, please leave your comment), but you still need to apply some network security policy, then you have to hard dump to your brain. For example, in SP CCIE Lab, the questions may ask you to apply an access-list to match all prefix documented in RFC 3330.

After my hard work, I have find out some hints for this RFC related reserved prefix listing:

Part I : RFC 1918
In RFC 3330 including well-known private IP network defined in RFC1918, so I think it is no a problem for most network engineer.
- 10.0.0.0/8
- 172.16.0.0/12
- 192.168.0.0/16

Part II : All classful network the First and the Last network
(1)The First & Last network in Class A network
- 0.0.0.0/8
- 127.0.0.0/8

(2)The First & Last network in Class B network
- 128.0.0.0/16
- 191.255.0.0/16

(3)The First & Last network in Class C network
- 192.0.0.0/24
- 223.255.255.0/24

Part III : Class D & E network
- 224.0.0.0/4
- 240.0.0.0/4

Part VI : DHCP Reserved network defined by Microsoft
- 169.254.0.0/16

Part V : RTBH(Remote Trigger Black Hole) Test-Net
- 192.0.2.0/24

Part VI : The others you have to spend some energy to memorize them...
- 14.0.0.0/8 (Public-Data Networks)
- 24.0.0.0/8 (Cable Television Networks)
- 39.0.0.0/8 (Reserved but subject to allocation)
- 192.88.99.0/24 (6to4 Relay Anycast)
- 198.18.0.0/15 (Network Interconnect Device Benchmark Testing)

This may be my last post in my blog before my first SP CCIE lab attempt~
Good luck to me and all you guys !!!
