You put the subshells in order of their principal quantum number and then their angular momentum quantum number. Going from the s to the d subshells, for example the 4s and 3d, the 4s subshell becomes a higher energy when the 3d starts to be filled which is why the 4s should be written afterwards when doing the configurations.
