Ten different theoretical models are tested for their accuracy in description of nuclear masses. Recent experimental masses of 2011 are used for the tests. The accuracy is studied in three regions of the nuclear chart: global (all nuclei with Z; N ≥ 8), heavy (Z ≥ 82; N ≥ 126) and the heaviest ones (Z > 100). It is found that the accuracy of a given model strongly depends on the region of nuclei in which it is used.
