Which bond enthalpies do we have to memorize?

I'm pretty sure they will give us a table of bond enthalpies if we're required to do those calculations. I would say the only ones you need to know are the basic ones such as C-C bonds, which you'll probably memorize while doing the homework.

The values are usually given for the uncommon ones. Highly recommend to memorize the common ones though just to be safe!

Dr. Lavelle mentioned in class (I think) that we would be given a table of bond enthalpies for everything we need to know - though like what others said, it would be useful to memorise the more common ones!

I would assume that you do not need to memorize any both enthalpies. In 14A, we were not expected to do any hard memorization. I would focus on problem solving skills and more conceptual things. Those are both things that Dr.Lavelle has generally shifted his focus to on past exams.
