次(cì) is one of the most frequently used measure words and is used to show the number of the event that happened. For example,

1)我见过他三次

Wǒ   jiànguò   tā   sāncì

I         meet    him  three times

‘I met him three times.’

遍(biàn) is used to describe a complete action from the beginning to the end. For example,

这个电影我看了三遍

Zhège    diànyǐng   wǒ   kànle    sānbiàn

This          movie      I     watch   three times

‘I saw this movie for three times.’
