# Wrong section Number

I'm having troubles with sections number...Each section continues the numeration of the precedent one, although a new chapter has started.

here is a MWE

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage{remreset,siunitx,array,textgreek,booktabs,etoolbox,geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx,wrapfig,lscape,rotating,amsmath}
\geometry{letterpaper}
\sisetup{text-micro=\textmu}

\title{\Huge\textbf{Title}}
\author{di \textbf{Author}}
\date{date}

\makeatletter
\renewcommand \thesection {\@arabic\c@section}
\@removefromreset{section}{chapter}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\chapter*{C1}
\section{S1.1}
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

\section{S1.2}
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah   blah blah blah
\chapter*{C2}
\section{S2.1}
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
\section{S2.2}
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

\chapter*{C3}
\section{S3.1}
blah blah blahblah blah blahblah blah blahblah blah blahblah blah blahblah


How can I solve this problem?

• Try to comment the line \@removefromreset{section}{chapter} – Sigur May 17 '14 at 18:50
• Plus, use \chapter (the non-starred version) instead of \chapter*. – lockstep May 17 '14 at 18:50
• Its the \chapter* command and your example is not complete. \end{document} is missing ;-) – user31729 May 17 '14 at 18:51
• @Sigur Commenting the line didn't help. – Mengops May 17 '14 at 18:54
• @lockstep Ok but I do need to use \chapter* because I don't want to see the "Chapter #" header to each chapter. Is there anyway to solve the problem and keep \chapter*? – Mengops May 17 '14 at 18:58

Quick and dirty redefinition of \chapter* 'works', it resets the section counter within and uses the usual chapter* style anyway.

\newcommand{\improvedstarredchapter}[1]{%

\begin{document}

If all you want is to remove the “Chapter n” part, the workaround is very simple: just change \@makechapterhead not to produce it and the easiest way is to use the same command used when \chapter* is found.
