How much of the bond angles are we expected to know?

We are expected to know the bond angles for every structure that we have learned, this includes

Linear (180 degrees)
Trigonal planar (120)
Tetrahedral (109)
Trigonal Pyramidal (<109)
Bent (<109)
Trigonal Bipyramidal (120 and 90)
Seesaw (<120 and <90)
Octahedral (90)
Square Planar (90)

Since many of the homework problems in chapter 4 ask for the bond angle of familiar shapes, it will be necessary to know these for test #4 and the final.
