My answer:

x^2+3xy+3x+2y^2-3y

Textbook Answer:

x^2+3xy+2y^2+3x-3y

Does the order matter? Thanks.

No. Does the answer to 2 + 3 differ from the answer for 3 + 2?

Actually, the answer does matter. When writing algebraic equations, you need to put the variables in order according to their exponents.
