# How can I get the word “Chapter” to be typeset in chapter headings (scrbook)?

I am using the scrbook class, and I want the word "Chapter" to appear in the heading of the chapter, instead of just the number. How can I do it? I tried

\renewcommand{\chaptername}{Chapter}


but that does not work.

No need for that. Just use chapterprefix=on as option for the document class. It is described in Chapter 3 of the »KOMA-Script« user guide. –  Thorsten Donig Dec 1 '13 at 7:22

\documentclass[chapterprefix=on]{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}

\blinddocument

\end{document}
