How do I reduce the line spacing in my Table of Contents? I tried with \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1} but it doesn't...

You should have a look at the setspace package. – Werner Aug 28 '12 at 21:53
\begin{spacing}{0.9} \tableofcontents \end{spacing} Thank you for help – researcher Aug 28 '12 at 22:20
You can answer your own question since it seems that you already have solved your problem. – hpesoj626 Aug 29 '12 at 4:01

Instead of the spacing environment, you can use also the tocloft package for a more granular control. See the MWE:

\usepackage{lipsum} % placeholder text
\chapter{The chapter one}
\chapter{The chapter two}
\section{Lore ipsum}
\section{Nam dui ligula}
\section{Nulla malesuada}
\chapter{The chapter three}
\section{Lore ipsum}
\chapter{The chapter four}
\section{Lore ipsum}
