my 5!! Shakti Misra has shown you the way but if you are a beginner please do not try to jump to the books regarding design directly (like the ones by Scott Meyers).first try to gain some knowledge about fundamentals and syntax(here book number 1 and 2 stated above will help you).

Mostly in india people start programming reading this book. Attaching the link

Yep, we can find this book in every school/college, 5!
Following SAKryukov, here you are my favourite book: C++ for Professional Programming[^], bit dated (like me) but very very good written (unlike me).

What Happened to this thread, all answer are deleted. How my sol is down voted??
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 23-Dec-11 23:28pm    
Why are you surprised? Some down-votes are reasonable, but some are poorly idiotic. It happens to me on a regular basis; it's the best to ignore it. I'm not sure I'm right, but it looks like a useful resource, my 5.
JackDingler 28-Dec-11 12:48pm    
As SAKryukov says, not all down votes are sensible. and you may never know why someone down votes you.

Perhaps they simply want to bring your score down?

Code Project downgrades the influence of voters who stray far from the norm and contradict regularly, those users with higher reputations.

So don't worry about it much.

I don't know many, would advise Bjarne Stroustroup, The C++ Programming Language.

5! Best advice as usual. Why not to learn C++ from Father of C++ directly.
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 24-Dec-11 0:52am    
Thank you, Pranit, but I don't really think my answer is the best. This is just one book with I think is better than others. I can see a number of problems in this book and in other Stroustroup's texts I knew. Being a father does not guarantee rightness or perfection. I would really like to read something better if somebody pointed it out...

Thank you again,

I agree. This book is not very suited for beginners. Better learn C++ through some examples.
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Dec-11 17:49pm    
I would say, this book is good to know and read anyway. But examples are important anyway, too. Learning need different approaches at the same time. It would be good to have some other book as well, yes, designed to suit the beginners better.

For instance because it is a bit difficult for the newbie.
