Installation Input required


Fairly new to Debian environment. I downloaded the 3 DVD
(debian-8.7.1-amd64-DVD-1.iso, debian-8.7.1-amd64-DVD-2.iso,
debian-8.7.1-amd64-DVD-3.iso). The reason for downloading all setup were:
1) Speed internet available in my office and allowed to download and
take it on usb flash drive.
2) Slow speed net in home (were I'm supposed to install debian) and
hence no netinst iso.
3) Setup would have all software that I would need, and a good
probability that some would have been on DVD2 or DVD3. This would have
ensured that I never had to use apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

During the entire setup screen, the debian installer did not asked me
for the 2nd or 3rd DVD. Also many a places its mentioned that the DVD is
a set of 12 DVD but I only found 3 set DVD.

Support pages mention that installer will ask for other part of the DVD
as an option. It never asked, only driver cd/dvd was asked.

Just wondering that did I missed something?

Also I installed with Sudo option (no root account), will this be of any
disadvantage at anytime in future over Sudo considering I'm not a power
