Circular saw with an abrasive masonry blade. Cut it outside and use a face mask.

I use an Irwin Marathon 24 tooth blade (because this is what happens to be on my saw) and cut backwards (this takes some practice) to reduce chip-out. It pretty much machines like wood with wood working tools. Any decent carbide tipped blade will work fine.

Re: Cutting Cultured Marble Counter Top

I've used an abrasive masonry blade
and a cheap diamond blade (can get
them for $12-$15 here).
Great results with both, main thing is
turn it up-side down and cut from
the back side.
Put your location in your profile!

You can dress the cut edge with a belt sander.
