Will we have to memorize all of the charges of all of the elements, or just the ones that are in the most common groups (such as Groups 1, 2, 16, 17, etc.)? Is the only way to tell the charge of transition metals by seeing the whole compound the element is in?
For transitional metals, the oxidation states usually vary, so for those I would just go off the compound given. However, it would be a good idea to remember some patterns like columns 1 (+1),2 (+2),16 (-2), and 17 (-1).
