Quick question buffering of large datasets?

Hi all --
The example database (db.db) only had about 20 or so records in it so reading the entire record set is not really a big deal.
However, if there were many many records, one would normally want some type of buffering scheme. I was just wondering if this is necessary for the assignment since it was not really called out as a requirement specifically.
Thanks

Not necessary.
Why go through that trouble, it won't help you get more points.

Indeed -- to the contrary. The requirements ask for a degree of simplicity, and this strikes me as overcomplicating the design.

That's kind of what I thought (that it would over-complicate the design), but it is also the case that buffering like that is something you'd normally do in a real world situation. I'll leave it out though. Thanks VERY much for your insights.
