If you understand v4, then you understand v6. The operating principles of the two protocols are somewhere around 90% identical.

I'm willing to bet there are a lot of network engineers that don't really understand v4 though. You only have to look around this thread at all the people who somehow think it's possible for v4 to be forwards compatible with v6...
