Here is some information on how you can prepare for your visa appointment:
First of all,
When you have done all of these things, you can apply for your F-1 student visa!
The Department of State issues visas at U.S. embassies and consulates. A visa allows you to travel to the United States for a specific purpose.

You should make your appointment for your visa interview as soon as possible after receiving your I-20 and paying the I-901 SEVIS fee. When you come for your appointment, a consular official will electronically scan your fingerprints. You must bring the following documentation to the interview:
The visa interview is your opportunity to tell the consular officer about your plans while in the United States and what you will do when you have completed your studies. You should be prepared to show the following:
Words of caution:
Proofread all of your travel-related documents (i.e., Form I-20, Form I-901 SEVIS fee receipt and visa) to ensure they are correct. Especially make sure your name and birth date are written exactly the same way on all of your documents. If you find an error in a document, have it corrected by the people who completed the document before you apply for the next document in the process.
Proofread your visa when the consular official returns your passport to you – mistakes in the visa information cannot be corrected once you travel. If you find a mistake in your biographical data or your visa type, contact the embassy or consulate to ask officials to correct the error.
For more specific information on submitting your student visa application, you may want to go the website of the U.S. consulate/embassy where you will be applying. You can find the website of your local embassy at: http://www.usembassy.gov/
Good luck and have a good interview!
