We revisit the problem of self-diffusion in normal liquid helium above the transition. Several different methods are applied to compute the velocity autocorrelation function. Since it is still impossible to determine the exact result for the velocity autocorrelation function from simulation, we appeal to the computation of short-time moments to determine the accuracy of the different approaches at short times. The main conclusion reached from our study is that both the quantum mode-coupling
