A question of formality?

I'm revising a text and it's a non-native writing in English. She prefers to use "of" than phrasing with inversions, and it's making me uneasy. I don't know if it's preferable in a formal context (it's a doctoral thesis). For example, "the revision of this thesis", instead of "this thesis revision", and "the sections of this thesis", instead of "this thesis sections". Can anybody help me?

In general, and in this specific case, "of" is more common. There are exceptions such as "golf cart", "grocery store", etc.

Learning Italian every day!
