Ligand Names

Do we need to memorize the ligand names listed in ONLY table 9C.1 for the final?

I am wondering the same thing something similar, as I have heard two different opinions. I have heard that we do need to memorize all the ligand names but I have also heard that we can simply work out the Lewis Structure and find the charge on the test. Does anyone know which is preferred?

I don't know for sure but if we can just work out the lewis structures and use the formal charges from there for the ligands, then we technically don't have to memorize them. I do think knowing a few of the common ones by heart might be helpful though so you can have more time for other things on the test
