How did you score?

0-5 points: To Twi or not to Twi? You don't really remember. You'll need to go back and watch most of the movies before you see the last installment, or you might be lost through the whole movie.

6-10 points: Twi, Twi again. It's been awhile, so recollection of all the details is sketchy. But you're slapping your forehead because you know that you knew all the answers at some point.

11-15 points: Good Twi. You've seen the movies or read the books recently enough to have a firm grasp of the characters, plot and details. Have fun at the last movie.

16-20 points: Twi-athlete. Congratulations. You're worthy of calling yourself a Twi-hard. You're the ones who will be posting Twi-tter reviews immediately after the movie, helping us decide whether to fork over the cash or wait till it's out on DVD.

All right, all you Twilight-ers, the wait is almost over.

Breaking Dawn -- Part 2, the highly anticipated final installment of the "Twilight" movie series, hits theaters Friday, and Stephenie Meyer's bank-breaking story of star-crossed, vampire-to-human love will come to a close.

The fifth and final film is slightly different from the other movies in the series. For one, Bella's finally a vampire, and she and Edward have a child together. They also have to battle the most powerful vampire coven in order to keep their child alive.

You may have seen the other films only once when they hit theaters, but let's be honest, you probably watched them 15 times more when they came out on DVD and on-demand.

Either way, it has been a full year (filled with a whole lot of off-screen drama) since Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 hit the big screen. If you need to brush up on your Twi-Q before you head to the theater, this quiz will get your wheels turning again.

Add up how many answers you get correct, and see just how big of a Twi-hard you really are.
