I've found the most effective way to learn Hungarian is to marry a Hungarian, have a child, and attempt to teach the child Hungarian. It's a never-ceasing source of amusement for the entire nation of Hungary plus you may end up knowing words like "potty", "diaper", and "eat."
Seriously, though, the best Hungarian text I ever saw was published by the US State Department as part of their language training programs. I'm not sure how you'd track it down, but your public library should be able to help. If you're in a major city, in fact, your public library may have it.
The State Department language texts are far superior to Berlitz anyway, as they're used to train diplomats and spies instead of tourists.
