If your chapters end with a "Problems" section, the best is to define a macro to do the job in a consistent way:


Then you'll simply say


<Here the list of problems>

The key is the \addcontentsline, that adds the entry to the table of contents. You might need to add something to adjust the headers, if you use them.
