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)?

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.

failure of logic?

st. Anselm - Fides quaerens intellectum (or Proslogion)
