How many molecular shapes are we supposed to be able to identify?

So far in lecture, we've cover linear, Trigonal planer, tetrahedral, Trigonal Bipyramidal, Octahedral, and trigonal Pyramidal. One key to remember is that although lone pairs of electrons change the shape, you do not look at them when naming the shape created.

I think there's 11 total (page 109 in the 6th edition) that we have to know along with the bond angles.
