I think it's going to be necessary for the most common shapes. There are also certain angles that are associated with certain shapes with a certain number of bonds. I'm sure Lavelle will establish which ones we have to memorize.
I believe it is necessary to know the bond angles of the most standard shapes. However, for molecular shapes in which lone pairs are present, it is only necessary to know the bond angle in relation to the bond angle in the standard shape
I believe we will have to memorize bond angles for the most common structures. However, many times you can tell some of the angles of the structure (like when its 90 or 180 degrees) by looking at the VSEPR structure itself which can make the process easier.
