Consider this MWE:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{roman}
\chapter*{Preface}
\lipsum
\tableofcontents{}
\chapter*{Acknowledgment}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Acknowledgment}
\chaptermark{Acknowledgment}
\lipsum
\chapter*{Prolog}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Prolog}
\chaptermark{Prolog}
\lipsum
\clearpage
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum
\end{document}

My question: How to remove '0.' from '0. ACKNOWLEDGMENT' and '0. PROLOG' in the unnumbered chapters' header?

  • Why don't you use \frontmatter for Preface etc. and \mainmatter for the introduction. Takes care of the page numbering as well. And you can use \chapter (no asterisk) and it will be in the toc as well. Double, triple deal. – Johannes_B May 1 '18 at 10:13
  • There was never any feedback, was the answer helpful? – Johannes_B May 20 '18 at 6:04

Use \frontmatter and \mainmatter instead of doing stuff by hand.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\chapter*{Preface}
\lipsum
\tableofcontents{}
\chapter{Acknowledgment}
\lipsum
\chapter{Prolog}
\lipsum
\mainmatter
\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum
\end{document}
