The article comments on proposed model for calculating the standard formation enthalpy of binary transition-metal systems. Accepting the averaged procedure for the prefactor of the compounds under study which presumably corresponds to the actual treatment of energies obtained from scientific model are always shifted to lower values. This means the modification of is an improvement only for those alloys with enthalpies of formation being too negative compared to experiment. However, for those compounds for which formation energies are already successfully predicted by researcher's model the proposed improvement fails.
