(1). Try to keep it around 1.2 (2). At 2.0 or above, you are likely to run into prolems without special treatment. (3). Keep it around 1.0 next to a wall.

yes my teacher also told me to keep it at 1.2, it might be some kind of thumb rule.

my experience says the condition number of the matrix grows adversly with the ratio.
