Learn The Suits, Cards, Values. A brand new deck of playing cards will have the cards in order - 4 suits, 13 cards each, King to Ace. Learn the 4 suits - Spades and Clubs are black; Hearts and Diamonds are red. left to right: Spade, Heart, Club, Diamond. Learn the individual cards - each suit has the same 13 cards: ranked high to low - A (Ace), K (King), Q (Queen), J (Jack), 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
On the Ordering of Playing Card Suits. Each individual playing card is identified by the unique combination of a value and a suit. The values are numeric in nature (if we assign 11, 12, and 13 to the Jack, Queen, and King, respectively); as such, we can order them easily, exploit their odd-even nature, use them in mathematical operations, etc. The methods underlying many effects are based on this numeric property of the values.
A usual value ordering for playing cards is 2 through 10 in numerical order, followed by Jack, Queen, King, and Ace in each suit. If you consider the Ace to be 1, then a numeric ordering would be A, 2-10, J, Q, K. In some games, the suits are ordered, too.
In magic, and some card games, you’ll often hear people refer to something called new deck order. New deck order simply refers to the order a deck of cards comes in straight out of the box before its been handled, cut, or shuffled. When you first open a standard deck of USPCC (US Playing Card Company) cards, you’ll most often see the two Jokers at the face of the deck, followed by the A through K of Spades, A through K of Diamonds, K through A of Clubs, and K through A of Hearts.

High card by suit and low card by suit refer to assigning relative values to playing cards of equal rank based on their suit. When suit ranking is applied, the most common conventions are: Alphabetical order: clubs (lowest), followed by diamonds, hearts, and spades (highest). This ranking is used in the game of bridge.
The short answer is: "it depends what game you are playing". The longer answer would be a list of the different ways that the suits are ranked in different games. Here are a few off the top of my head (rank from high to low in each case): hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades: Preference, 500, Tysiacha. clubs, spades, hearts, diamonds: Skat, Doppelkopf, Sheepshead.
