The bond strength between a given pair of atoms varies slightly from one compound to another because of the different electronegativities of the other atoms in the compound. When we use bond enthalpy values to calculate standard enthalpy, we are actually using the mean bond enthalpy which is the average value of bond enthalpy calculated from different molecules containing the bond. So this method may be slightly less accurate than using "products - reactants"
