Hybridization shortcuts

Are there any shortcuts or quick ways of finding an atom's hybridized orbitals?

A shortcut for determining the hybridization of an atom is to : look at the atom; then count the number of atoms connected to it; third, count the number of lone pairs; finally add up the number of atoms and lone pairs to get your hybridization value.
