Default Papers you need to take to the Prometric center

May I know what papers I need to bring with me to the step 1 prometric center? When I applied the step 2 CS, the permit paper listed all the required items I need to bring with me. But I found nothing regarding step 1.
I guess I need to bring the ID, IWA permit, Prometric Appointment Confirmation?
Anything else?

I found something weird in the IWA permit:
"2. CONFIRM OR CHANGE APPOINTMENT: Confirm your appointment using your Prometric Confirmation Number one week before your appointment at or by calling the telephone number above."

Sorry but this is not clear to me. Why I need to call or use the website one week before the test although I already have the prometric confirmation email I received couple of months ago when I schedules the test date?

Your permit, passport (or any other form of accepted ID) and your Prometric confirmation letter are fine.
I don't know why they normally ask candidates to confirm their seats. I didn't bother doing it and I had no problems on the exam day Ahl

Good luck!
