All functional changes associated with disease make up pathophysiology. I think if you understand physiology well then Goljan with audio lectures should be enough for pathophysiology.

Yup - Kaplan / BRS Pathophysiology / Goljan and Qbanks all adequately cover Pathophysiology but you have to find the combination that works for you to answer questions...

Pathophysiology is a major part of the exam. In my opinion, it's those pathophysiology questions that differentiate between a really clever student and a student who just memorizes stuff. That's because such questions are usually associated with graphs and other analytical data, such that you just can't get the answer right because you'd memorized certain something. That's the "applying knowledge" part.

I think most of pathophysiology is covered in physiology. Qbanks will also train you well in this regard.
