Very enthusiastic, very intelligent. Lectures are genuinely fun to go to. However, in his flare for making the subject interesting, he often loses sight of making sure we really understand a concept before flying off to a new topic. Dude drinks more coffee than anyone at Cal.

AMAZING TEACHER! He loves what he does and is very approachable and nice! he writes on the board and sometimes it might be hard to take perfect notes, but recording the lectures and rewriting notes clearly is what definitely helped me. His tests are extremely fair and easy and because the questions are broad, write down as much as possible

Isacoff is definitely one of the best science teachers at Cal. If you just go to lectures, pay attention and focus on understanding (which isn't too difficult because he explains things fairly well), you will do well in the class. His test questions are straight-forward and completely manageable. He is a great teacher. I definitely recommend him

One of the best, if not the best, professor I've had in Berkeley. Teaches CONCEPTS, without the ton of unnecessary vocabulary usually found in MCB courses.

BEST SCIENCE PROFESSOR AT BERKELEY!! He's entertaining in lecture and very helpful during office hours (not condescending like many other science profs at Cal). And his exams are really fair if you go to lecture and pay attention to his important concepts. I LOVE EHUD!

He's a good/clear lecturer, but since he only uses the board, it's difficult to go back and study the material unless you're a very talented note taker (which I'm not). Going to office hours help, because he'll explain things in more detail. His exam questions are fair/straightforward, which is good.

Very nice and colorful guy. Entertaining lectures, but also knowleadgeable and builds confidence in his students. Material is broad which is good. The best science teacher I've had in Berkeley.

He provides a lot of interesting information, but often is "all over the place" in his lecturing. You learn a lot about experiments, especially since he tries to engage the students in his discussions. He knows the material very well. His tests are fairly long for the time given, if only because he expects extremely detailed answers .
