Yes, you are exactly right! The only difference is that an ionic bond is a bond between a metal and a nonmetal and then a metallic bond is between 2 metals. Again, just look at the periodic table to determine whether an element is a nonmetal or metal.
Covalent bonds are pairs of shared electrons between atoms. This type of bonding occurs between two atoms of the same element or of elements close to each other in the periodic table. Thus, in order to determine this, you would have to look at the periodic table.
