Will we need to know the electronegativity values of elements on the quiz?

I don't believe we have to memorize the specific values for each element. If anything, I would try to remember the trends in the periodic table regarding electronegativity. For example, electronegativity seems to decrease moving down a group and increase moving right across a period. This is excluding the noble gases. For study material, Figure 3.12 in the textbook, pg. 92, is very helpful to visualize this.
