Deutsch Interaktiv: http://www.dw.de/learn-german/deutsch-interaktiv/s-9572

I have bought this one: Frequency dictionary of German. Core vocabulary for learners. By Jones and Tschirner. ISBN 0-415-31633-2

Words are ordered by frequency, of course. Not alphabetically.

In this dictionary 4037 words (out of almost 4 millions existing in the Gernan language) are presented with English translation and a little sentence. I found that it helps me focussing. Once you have learned the 100 most used of verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions... well, you can't still say to know German, but at least you can make sense out of a lot of speeches.

This seems so helpful! I'm going to use this soon! I have a contribution to your list. http://www.dw.de/learn-german/s-2469 They offer an online course for learning German, and radio lessons where they immerse you in the language and teach you to listen to whats going on around the people.

P.S.: Did you find the FSI course from me? :)

Don't forget dict.leo.org it's a university run German language dictionary. While it is primarily aimed at English and German speakers, it also maintains excellent dictionaries between German and many other languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin and so on.

I've found it to be the go-to source for unusual or modern words.
