    I have found that some verbal reasoning passages differ by length in some practice exams. If you have taken the real MCAT, what study resource would you say most mirrors the real length on the real test? Thanks.

    It's approximately the same length. Adjust your computers resolution to that of the test centre's and you'll see that you have to do the same amount of scrolling.

    People say the real MCAT is longer because they don't realize how much scrolling the larger font adds
