Probably you might have heard about this book.But this is the best book.

The cheapest and easiest way is searching google for c++ beginners tutorials and then just experimenting with code. This way will save you money of course and being all self-taught I personally feel self teaching helps you develop skills more becuase you have more freedom to write whatever code you wish and then if you have any problems you can come ask them on EE.

I prefer u to read this book first.

Since u r from india , u can try C++ Programming by Balaguruswamy . Very cheaper edition . Simple and easily understandable for all type of novice programmer . I can rate this book only as (Beginners) ... But very effective ..after that u can go for Robert Lafore(Intermediate) and finally u go for stroustrup c++ book (Professional)...

As other friends mentioned , internet search will be more effective when u come across for all ur doubts.

If you have not got any programming experience before then get some algorithms book . If you have done programming then its just a matter of grabbing the syntax which you can do by Getting yourself a C++ Ebook . There are hundreds of Ebooks freely available on the net. Also there is a site called
                http://cppreference.com/

Good site for C++ syntax and other details

Infact there is a book called Let us C++ by Yashwant Kanetkar. Most of my friends had learnt the C++ Language using the book

Download a few compilers TurboC++ 3.0 or Borland C++ 5.5 etc

Use the net lots of material and help is available on the net.

Also you can post queries on the EE

ey wassup...

last year i decided to teach myself how to program. now i have made advanced programs such as an encryption program, a keylogger, a lockdown app, and a windows service. i also know c++, c#, and vb6. so if anybody tells u that u MUST spend a lot of money and get professional tutoring, well that's totally untrue.

c++ is closer to the 'machine level' than other languages such as c# and vb, which makes it quite a difficult language to learn if u have never programmed before. if this is the case, i would highly recomend getting yourself a book on vb (this is a very good language to start with, and for certain things, it is more useful than the big guns such as c++ and java). Once you r comfortable with this language, and feel the need for more control over the O/S, then move to c++.

Back when i only knew vb and c#, i was working on the keylogger program, and i was told by a professional programmer i met on this site that "the second language you learn is the hardest, after that you realize that they are all the same". Now i realize that this is true, and im sure u will see what im talking about later on ;)

later,

suma

I think the best point to start , even if you haven't got any programming experience , is the TEACH YOURSELF C++ IN 21 DAYS , by Sams found here:
http://newdata.box.sk/bx/c/

I , myself , started with this one , and now , I'm making money by developing applications in C++ Builder ;)

Turbo C++ for Dos is good.
try it.
