How can I configure the \part command to use A, B, C, ... to label parts, instead of I, II, III, ... Or is this bad practice?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Not bad practice, just be careful. You may end up being a little ambiguous (for example, appendices use letters) –  Sean Allred Feb 26 '13 at 14:54

Nice to be here. True, it might not appear very consistent when the appendix also is also partitioning in letters. I'll probably not do it. –  TMOTTM Feb 26 '13 at 14:57

We all know that this has been asked before, don't we? ;) –  tohecz Feb 26 '13 at 15:12
    
@tohecz To be honest, in the possible "original" question \thepart as well as \Alph were missing before my edit. –  lockstep Feb 26 '13 at 15:18
    
@lockstep I see. Still, the right action is of course to find it an improve it, since the question is essentially the same. –  tohecz Feb 26 '13 at 15:25
