Hi, I was wondering, to what extent do we have to memorize the different names for the VESPR models for the final? I know the basics, but there are so many combinations with lone pairs. Do we have to know all of them?
I would try and memorize all of them because it seems like any of them are likely to show up for the exam. If you can't memorize all of them, I would try and memorize the lower bond pair shapes as they are more likely to show up because they are more common.
You should try to memorize all of them with a greater focus on the more common ones because generally if you know all the common ones, you can cross those out in a multiple choice test. Then you can try to recognize them based on their names because a lot of the VSEPR structures are quite recognizable based solely on name.
