the difference between perfect and pluperfect?

SALVETE OMNES!
I'm up to chapter 12 right now and it looks like Latin is just splitting hairs here...
So what is the difference between I have praised (perfect) and I had praised (pluperfect)?
Would it depend on the rest of the sentence? Like I have praised Apollo in the past, and I might continue to do so, vs, I had praised Apollo until I found out Jupiter was stronger?

How did I do with ...

ch 36 fio - is it copulative?

One of the exercises at the back is-
vos oramus ut discipuli acerrimi fiatis. We are begging you so that you might become very keen students.
I would have thought it should be discipulos acerrimos.

Translation?

I'm sorry if this is an inappropriate place for this question. However, after searching the net, I found no other place that I could put this question to.

Your (least) favorite fiction books

Yes, this topic has been discussed before, but I don't think it's reached to the annoying point yet, has it?
