(Polar molecules, Non-polar molecules, etc.)

I just wanted to clarify which shapes we need to know. Dr. Lavelle went over most of them in class, but the textbook has a few more that we did not go over. Would it be correct to assume we only need to know the information about the linear, bent/angular, trigonal planar, tetrahedral, trigonal bipyramidal, octahedral, trigonal pyramidal, seesaw, and square planar shapes? What about t-shaped?
We definitely need to know the shapes we learned in class, and also the shapes of molecules based on the regions of electron density before lone pairs are taken into account. Even though we didn't go over T-shaped, we had homework problems assigned that incorporated that shape, so I would definitely be familiar with its structure.
