I use \chapter{Appendix I} to create an Appendix I title however it appears as shown below:

enter image description here

Then I use \chapter*{Appendix I} to remove the Chapter 10 part but when I do that the Appendix I no longer appears in the Table of Contents section.

What should I do to achieve an Appendix page that appears both in the table of contents and also doesnt have a Chapter X with it ?

It may depend on the document class that you are using, but the usual way is to use \appendix.

\chapter{A chapter}
\renewcommand\thechapter{\Roman{chapter}} %New
\chapter{An appendix}

This looks nice. Is it possible to do it Appendix I instead of Appendix A ? – Cemre Aug 15 '12 at 19:52
@Cemre --- indeed it is. I have edited my answer. – Ian Thompson Aug 15 '12 at 20:04
