Sachse transposed and duets almost everyday.
I use the Starer book in college and it is very nice... starts out very easy and gets into very complicated rhythm's. It will definatley help.
Ah - transposition...THAT is one of the other things at the top of my list I would like to improve, right along with sight reading and jazz improv.
Yeah, that's it. Starer isn't really a work book, just a set of excercizes. I used that book in Solfege for four semesters. It helps to have someone guide you through it; there are pretty straightforward rhythmic examples but I got the most out of the variations given to my by my solfege teacher.
The only way to get good at sight reading is by trying to read a huge amount of material you've never seen before. The suggestions about local bands were right on the mark. If you have to sight read in actual performance situations you'll get good at it. It's something I had to do just last week. Good exercise.
