# Including appendices problem

How do I create appendices chapter in my thesis in a proper way? Currently I am suing the following code:

\begin{appendix}
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{}

\chapter{appendices}\label{ch:appendices}
\section {aaa}
\section {bbb}

\end{appendix}


But, when I use this code I have a problem, where LaTeX is verifing the appendices as CHAPTER A in the list of content. How do I get rid of CHAPTER A?

\appendix is a declaration and not an environment.

I'd say that

\appendix
\chapter*{Appendices}
\markboth{Appendices}{}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{A.\arabic{section}}


should solve your problem. The sections will be numbered A.1, A.2 and so on.

Thanks, it's working just fine. Now, the Appendices chapter appears before references. How I can make it appears after it? –  Aymen Jun 13 '12 at 3:22
How I can insert another sections begin with B.1, B.2? I modified the code to \renewcommand{\thesection}{B.\arabic{section}}, but it gives me B.3 after the previous A.2 –  Aymen Jun 13 '12 at 3:49
@Aymen In case of more than one appendix, usually one doesn't say simply "Appendices", but rather \chapter{TitleA}, \chapter{TitleB} and so on. Otherwise your reader won't have clues why the numbering has changed. –  egreg Jun 13 '12 at 6:30
OK, but how about the ordering of Appendices and references? I want Appendices to appear at the end of the document. –  Aymen Jun 13 '12 at 8:53
@Aymen Usually the bibliography comes last, so it's easier to find it when consulting the document. –  egreg Jun 13 '12 at 11:57
