For an absolute beginner, Starting Strength is best. Full stop.

My preference when getting started in serious strength training was 5/3/1 with guidance (having transferred from a BB style split, I like the larger number of exercises). I still think that is the best way to take someone from a low intermediate level, to a competitive level of RAW strength.

My preference right now is Westside. It is working a TREAT for me and the exercise rotation keeps things fresh. You do need a higher level of knowledge to make it work though.

I think that answers your question although I may have got carried away...
