Where are verbal passages of equivalent length to MCAT?

All I hear about from MCAT - ers is how the real MCAT passages are longer than expected. I also have heard that the old non-CBT MCAT had shorter passages which is why most test prep have shorter passages than the MCAT. I was curious about two things:
1. Are the AAMC Practice tests (other than 3) equivalent length to the MCAT?
2. If not, where can I find passages of equivalent length or does someone know a rough estimate of the line count?

I have done all the EK101.. with minimal results(starting the book over) and have done some Kaplan, but the questions/passages seem too confusing so I've stopped for now.
