    This is one of the best "systems" I've found for reading texts and academic articles. It also works for taking lecture notes in a class. I've used this and I've taught this, and it works!

    Another idea for reading difficult works is called SQ3R:

    If you learn to practice both of these, you should find it easier to handle the information that academic works give you.

    Yes, you should read with a good dictionary on hand -- or open online (http://www.answers.com is a good one), but you should also be able to do a fair amount of "guesstimation" based on the sentence in which the words is used -- that is, the context in which the word is used.
