Yes. The questions asked will include what is the geometry and shape of the compound and for that I think you would need to, at bare minimum, memorize their names. Other than that, the names would give some hints as to their angles and other characteristics.
We do have to memorize the different shapes. However, Lavelle said that we are not required to memorize all of the bond angles as we will never be specifically asked to state them. The main thing that he wants us to remember are the shapes.

I think he will go over more on Friday just because he didn't go over the specific shapes that occur once lone pairs get involved and some of the HW problems ask for those structures.
