I think it's a good idea to take a copy of your cv - once when I had an interview through an agency, they'd supplied the employer with a copy of my cv that had part of it missing.
I always take my covering letter too, but that's so I can read through it on the way there and remind myself what I've said. Can't think of anything else you need, as proof of qualifications etc would be after being offered the job.
Good luck!

Hey hun, Congrats! My advice is yes take your cv, never trust an agency to send it over, they might but you can expect the person interviewing you to forget to bring the darn thing, or confuse you so ensuring you have a copy shows initiative and fore thinking.

Keep extra papers neatly bound - a document wallet or something. Ensure you label them if you are going to refer to them in an interview. Shuffling through looks worse than having none at all. If keeping them for cribbing before hand allude to the pack with a wave of the hand but don't necessarily show them off to much. Enough to show keenness, too much slightly weird.

Other than that be smart and turn your phone to silent! Don't forget!!

Good luck
