At which level? \addcontentsline{toc}{<level>}{<text>} where <level> is part, chapter, … and <text> could be Intro. (Or just plain \chapter{Intro}?) This could also be something for an abstract environment or macro. – Qrrbrbirlbel Nov 17 '12 at 16:02
I'm not sure if it's what you want, but you can try /frontmatter. – maria Nov 17 '12 at 16:04
after you put \chapter*{Intro} and afetr \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Intro} – maria Nov 17 '12 at 16:11
yeah now it worked...thanks maria – Mazzy Nov 17 '12 at 16:19
@maria Please, can you provide a minimal, but complete, code as an answer? – egreg Nov 18 '12 at 20:48

\documentclass{scrbook}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Introduction} % what looks better section or chapter?
\section*{Introduction} % * prevents the numbering. We already added it manually to toc above
\chapter{Theory}
\chapter{Experiment}
\end{document}


# thanks to the comment I found a better solution in the book 2:

use one of the commands

\addpart[short]{long headline}


### Working example

\documentclass{scrbook}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\end{document}

Why not \addsec{Introduction} that avoids the need to use \addcontentsline? – egreg Nov 18 '12 at 23:28

Well, there is the solution with \frontmatter command:

%& --translate-file=utf-8
\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter
\chapter*{Intro}

Some text

\mainmatter

\chapter{FIRST}
Some more text

\backmatter

\tableofcontents

\end{document}

 In the frontmatter, you may simply use \chapter{Intro} (the non-starred version), as \frontmatter switches off chapter numbering. – lockstep Nov 19 '12 at 15:53 @lockstep when I use non-starred version, there is two "Intro" lines in TOC. – maria Nov 19 '12 at 15:56 Of course, you should remove \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Intro}. – lockstep Nov 19 '12 at 15:57 @lockstep Of course :) – maria Nov 19 '12 at 16:21
