    A. 6-12 is the best if you are only going to use one rep range. It's best to use varied rep ranges, as in 3-7 rep sets along with 10-15 rep sets as a guideline.

    B. Test favors low reps, GH favors high reps.

    usually stick to 4-6 on my heaviest and once a month I'll do some one rep max work as well to help break those plateau's

    I would suggest pyramidding for squats and deadlifts. The pyramid has always been a good size and strength builder on the very basic exercises. Start lighter and work your way into HEAVY weights. I would start with reps are 8-10 and finish your squats and deads with 4-5 reps.
