I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

Welcome to TeX.SX! While the advice is sound for different kinds of problems, I don't see how it handles the present one.

comment etaremune fails: “undefined control sequence”
Welcome to TeX.SX! You seem to have downloaded etaremune.sty in the work directory, but are using a quite old TeX distribution. This is not going to work, because the current version of etaremune uses features of xkeyval that were added in a later version than you have. But downloading the new xkeyval could produce other similar problems. Update your TeX distribution, instead.

comment Does LaTeX really perform worse than Word?
I think this is off topic. Or, if you prefer, opinion-based. There can be no “answer”, but only a discussion, which is surely outside the scope of this site.

You have to \usepackage{harvard} (before \usepackage{hyperref}). Remove \usepackage{cite}.
