I think it would be scarier knowing because you will know!

Pros and cons to each... Dr. Timothy Leary knew he was dying so he made the process in to a fun party and planned some jokes/pranks for his friends (I read somewhere that a few weeks after he died, some of his friends got emails from him 'from the other side', which he had obviously set up beforehand).
So if I knew I had a certain number of weeks/days, it would be nice to be able to prepare for it and maybe even be able to enjoy the experience. (Hey, none of us are going to avoid it anyway, so why not try and make it fun?)
On the other hand, there would be a lot of anticipation and probably some stress and sadness, which wouldn't be there if it just happened unexpectedly.2
