capital one secured card

This is the happiest I've ever been to receive a secured credit card. I was approved for 200.00. I havent had a credit card in years. Do u think this secured card will raise my score? I have a mortgage, auto loan and installment loans. Credit score 543 EQ.

Also can you'll provide me with some rules to credit card management? Do's and dont's.
