German for Reading presupposes no previous acquiantance with German and can be used with equal effectiveness by graduate students in the arts and sciences who are preparing to pass a reading knowledge examination, or by undergraduates who are beginning to deal seriously with the problems of reading. Its programmed format permits it to be used either as a classroom text or by individuals working on their own. The second edition builds on strengths of the first while updating outdated terminology, removing terms and phrases no longer in use, and incorporating many revisions made in light of suggestions from readers -- From back cover.

Beginning Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition: From Novice to Professional (Beginning: From Novice to Professional)
You should be able, for example, to read a German newspaper or journal with fair to good comprehension or to begin the serious study of German literary text" How realistic do you think this is? Still, only in the final one or two chapters does the German used approach the German for reading of writing students will encounter 'in the wild,' so I recommend supplementing the book with paragraphs from works in your field to stretch your reading capacities and to get away from the overly manicured example sentences.
Pick a flair according to your level. Mattia and his affinity for colors? Looking for a German teacher? That being said, if you are extremely motivated to read a particular text then that motivation can be enough to carry you through the difficulty looking up word after word.
