will we need to memorize the heat capacity for different elements, or will it always be given on problems?

I believe some of the important ones are already included on the formula sheet

They should give us the heat capacities on most of the problems, but it wouldn't hurt to memorize some of the basic elements or compounds like water

I would memorize the heat capacity of water, but other capacities most likely will be given in the equations sheet.

We should be given a table with a number of different values, including the heat capacity of various elements/compounds.

I think they would most likely be given on the formula sheet, I would memorize the value for water just in case.

Water is one heat capacity you should memorize. Other than that, the heat capacity of different elements is usually given in the specific problem.
