Other shapes

For the test, do we need need to know t-shaped and see-saw? I saw it in the practice and the textbook, but it wasn't mentioned in Wednesday's lecture.

It might be mentioned during lecture tomorrow. I heard from my TA that the lecture tomorrow would still be included on the test

Yes, I believe we are responsible for knowing all of the shapes for the test.

This website has a good chart for memorizing the names of the molecular shapes. When seen in this form it's easier to conceptualize since it becomes clear that they follow a pattern.
