checkboxes and labels

If I understand WAI correctly, labels for radio buttons and checkboxes
should appear after the radio button or checkbox. For example:
Choose your area of interest:
[] Personal Development [] Management Skills
Have I interpreted this correctly? Why have the checkbox before hearing
what you are checking? Or, do I have something wrong? Thanks.
