Metric system is generally viewed as less complicated and easier to learn, because all units are based on powers of ten. So rather than having to remember something like 16 ounces in a pound, there are 1000 grams in a kilogram. The prefixes will tell you what power to use. So if you learned kilo- is 1000 for gram and kilogram, then you know that a kilometer is 1000 meters.
