When writing the ground state of an element would it still be okay to order it as 4s2, 3d10 instead of 3d10, 4s2 even though 4s2 is filled in first. The answers to these problems are sometimes switched.

I totally agree, I think it should be 4s2, 3d10 just because the periodic table moves in that progression. I think as long as you include everything, it shouldn't matter!
