Everybody will tell you something different.
It's more about what works for YOUR body.
Generally maximum strength gain is found in lower 3-5 range. Some say 1-6. Its all about experimenting.
For mass gains, I trained in the 6-8, 8-10,10-12 range. Change up your ranges. always change up your workouts.

what about doing something like 3-5 on one exercise and 8-12 on another exercise for the same muscle group, e.g. bench and incline! would u thenget the best of both worlds??

I've come to the conclusion that variety is the key.
I change rep schemes & exercises every month,or every 2-3 weeks.
Sometimes I vary from week to week.Keep your muscles guessing.
If you prescribe to same routine constantly,your muscles are basically laughing at you.They become adaptable quite easily.

lower reps tend to be strength, while higher reps are for toning but it depends on how your body reacts to certain exercise's

Like everyone else said, everyone has their own opinion....but what has worked really well for me is a training system by MD columnist - Eric Broser - called Power/Rep Range/Shock.
I would quickly describe it as a 3-distinctly different weeks that incoporates all types of training from Power (4-6 reps) to Rep Ranges (7-9, 10-12, 13-15 and even 16-20) to Shock (drop sets and supersets). Once you're done, start back with power week and do 3-4 cycles and you'll see results!
Google it and let me know what you think.
