You should just memorize the generic ones: linear=180 degrees, trigonal planar=120 degrees, tetrahedral=109.5 degrees, trigonal bipyramidal=90 and 120 degrees, and octahedral=90 degrees. However, you should also know that having lone pairs will cause the bond angles to be less than the basic amounts, like how in a bent molecule the angle would be <109.5 degrees, so on and so forth.
