I mostly just stare at the vsepr sheet, trying to redraw the shapes or just memorizing the numbers helps like how many bonds and lone pairs are associated with the names and once you think you're familiar with them the sapling hw for this week has a lot of questions about naming the shapes so that's helpful too
I don't think there is any better way to memorize the VSEPR models beyond simply memorizing the shapes of the models, but I think it might be helpful to think about how each name describes the structure of the bonding pairs and how the lone pairs contributes to each model's shape.
I recommend looking at the images for each of the shapes and trying to quiz yourself on them. I also like to draw them out myself during lectures from the models that Professor holds up since it helps me to remember and understand it if I have drawn it out myself but this is just what works for me! I hope this helps!!
