Kaplan MCAT Books state that there are 6 passages in 60minutes. But, to be safe - work towards the 7.

There are definitely 40 questions in 60 minutes in one sitting though.

Either you're using old books or Kaplan is feeding its people wrong information. AAMC clearly states 7 passages for all 3 sections

thats right. i took MCAT yesterday and it had 7 passages in all three sections. Although passage numbers can vary in PS and BS, it will remain same in VR.
