Has anyone got any good ways to remember bond angles and shapes??! I'm struggling with remembering them!

Thanks!

It's better to understand why a molecule has the shape and bond angles it does. There's a series of really good videos on this topic that everyone seems to find helpful (first one in the spoiler). They are quite long but I'd say it's worth the time investment.

Do you mean forms like linear, trigonal-planar, trtrahedral etc.? I was used to look for pictures with geometric adaptions to those, as in this case.

Another method to remember is to recreate these sturctures by chemistry-models and to label them with the names. Anyway I have the opinion that such a model kit is the best to learn molecule structures.
