C++ course has started in my college. I would like to know the best beginner book for C++. My teacher has referred Robert Lafore and The Complete Reference. Since there are a lot of suggestions given in the sticky thread, I am confused.
Thanks in advance :)

I would like to know the best beginner book for C++.

The best book is the one you understand that makes the fewest mistakes. I (and most clueful C++ programmers) recommend Accelerated C++ as a first book due to quality, but that doesn't mean it will be a good fit for you.

My teacher has referred Robert Lafore and The Complete Reference.

This suggests that your teacher isn't very good. My condolences. While Robert Lafore doesn't write horrible books, they're still bottom shelf quality-wise. And Herbert Schildt's books have been the butt of jokes for decades.
