    So what should I do if I want to add an unnumbered conclusion (which is quite logical at the end of my report) ?

    I find that pasting \addcontentsline below \chapter*{} gives the correct page number in the table of contents for the book document class.

    Thanks a lot =)

    Thanks a lot! This is the simplest solution I have found. I am using it like this:


    \chapter*{Main Conclusions}
    \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Main Conclusions}

    1) Putting `\addcontentsline` after `\chapter*` correct page numbering as @Ayoe mentioned
    2) I have removed the left indent

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
