I used pathoma (just the text) and had never even heard of Goljan when I took my test. 272. The key is learning the content, not relying on the vehicle alone.

I think it depends upon how much time you have till your exam.
Goljan is a big book, reading through it and highlighting important/high yield content would take time. Plus, you are going to have to revise as well.
Pathoma is concise, and from what I have read on forums, it is a great book.
I think it really depends on how you study not where you study from.
