Depends on the bodypart. For biceps I don't do any more than 6 sets, for chest I do atleast 9. Kind of a vague question.

It would depend on what your goals are and what your body type is. I personally like 12 sets for big muscles and 9 sets for small muscles

i think the key is to understand which muscles get worked the most while performing day to day activities. for most people, that is mainly biceps, and shoulders, so you shouldn't tear the sh_t out of those muscle groups unless you make sure you move them as little as possible on rest days. for me, other muscle groups like triceps and back can be worked out to the extreme, as in 15-20 sets. on a side note, it fu_king pisses me off when people ridicule me for trying to exert the least amount of effort possible when im picking stuff up, or cutting my chicken breast up or whatever. they're always like "are you really that weak? you look so strong" it makes me want to stomp on their head until they get a fu_king concussion

ditto on the points brought up here... but expanding on this... It depends too on the individual and said individual's recuperative ability.
The 'perfect' set/rep scheme is something one learns tru trial and error: through listening to one's body.
It also changes over time... with time being a major determinant..and development over said time being an important variable.
That being said... How long've you been training?
