Other wise, door me it's like rush said; if you have enough tune to hit the gym 3, 4 + days a week, isolation is better. And of choose if you're looking to focus more on cardio, you might hit the gym less if you're running more; in that case fewer days would lead you to do full body workouts, out look in to trying circuits.
You know loves circuits? Daniel Craig. You know who loves Daniel Craig?
This is interesting. I'll give it a try at the end of the month.

What's the best way to go about dropping those 8 or so pounds without losing muscle?
If you don't want to lose muscle while you cut, keep lifting. Just consume less calories while still making sure you get the proper amount of protein, carbs, etc.
