Default Exam Day tips

Hi , my exam is getting close and all i can think nowadays is how to make it right .. I wanted to know if we could bring our watch to the exam center with us .. because i'm afraid on breaks i would loos my time-table and spend more time than i should on each break .. also i wanted to know if we should bring our food and water to the center or they give us what we need? we pay them 1000$ by the way !! and another think is it important what we wear ? heard they check on us every time we came out and go inside !! do they give us papers for calculating or writhing or perhaps a white board maybe ? earplugs needed ?
so many questions in my mind ... appreciate if anyone help me thanks

Bring whatever you want from food, your watch, and some drinks. You will keep everything in the locker they give you. You will take 2 things into the exam room: your passport+the locker key. You are allowed to open the locker after each break to eat, look at the watch, or whatever you want to do.
Actually there is no need to look at your watch, there is a clock in the rest room.
Regarding water, it is available in the center
Wear something very comfortable, like a training suit
