Neither. Use Pathoma. It is shorter and good enough.

How much time do you have left anyway? Kaplan is good to cover all the bases, but it is too detailed for revision.
As for Goljan, it is a good book. But, it's really thick and takes a long long time to digest all the material. Yes, it might get you a few points on the test (maybe), but it's not time well spent.
Go for FA+Pathoma and you'll be fine.

Okay, than Pathoma+FA is definitely your best shot.

Good luck!
