    It's pretty reliable and you can do it without the aid of an x-ray crystallography machine or a supercomputer. You can't say both of those things about other ways of determining molecular geometries. :yy:

    a lot of results like VSEPR, molecular orbitals, etc are approximations that are very close to the actual stuff(so I am told), but you can count on the reliability of the VSEPR most of the times.
