Yes long maths questions do appear in KE exams
You would typically have 20-30 questions with each question having 3 parts to it.
For example they could give u a train timetable or international timeline (GMT or BST) or any sort of data and ask u questions such as which train does A need to take to go from London to Glasgow or what will be the time in Australia if it is 12 noon in London and so on
The questions I was told are a bit tough i.e. the children have really apply the logic .

If you see the sticky which says KE content 2005 - 2010 then in the maths section you do see that they have long maths

Schofield & Sims book 6 is alright although the questions are easier than KE exams.

If you can get hold of this book then it's really helpful for the long maths prep. Available on Amazon (see other versions for £1.95 in the small print - format section) and possibly available on ebay. Definitely worth purchasing.

Re: long maths & websites BBC skillwise website was good to introduce dd on how to read bus timetables and mileage charts etc.

old sats papers have some 2 or 3 part questions, try googling data handling KS2 as well.

I'd recommend downloading past papers for independent schools, they have some good practice questions for long maths as well as being good prep if you want to enter for the indies - for which, IIRC, fm recommended tackling Perse, Dulwich, Habs and Manchester Grammar in that order - MGS is quite tough. MGS English 1 paper is also good practice imho. Obviously, if you're not very confident about your own abilities you might want to make sure you find ones that come with the answers!

lots of practical stuff too to build skills

Read timetables, work out cooking times, interpret graphs in papers, time differences, difference in temperatures ( in papers or on world news) work out scales on maps or those bathroom planner grids.
