I believe we only have to know the 5 most basic molecule shapes involving just two elements in a compound. The 5 shapes are: linear (180 deg), trigonal planar (120 deg), tetrahedral (109.5 deg), trigonal bipyramidal (3 at 120 deg, 2 at 90 deg), and octahedral (90 deg). The specific bond angles also depend on the orientation of electrons in the molecule as well, so they can be a little smaller or larger than their set angles.
