German for wannabe academics?

I recently graduated from college, and I'm going to be applying for graduate programs in musicology this winter (to start next fall). The programs I'm looking at have different language requirements, but the majority of them require you to take proficiency exams in German and one other language at some point. I know French already, so I just need to learn German, and I'd like to use my year off to get started with that. I've decided against taking a class because it would probably move too slowly, given the amount of time I have. It also wouldn't be geared toward the kinds of things I need to learn, since I need to focus on reading comprehension and translation above writing or speaking. Can anyone recommend a textbook or other method that I could do on my own?
