I bought a sheet of cement "Hardibacker" board. The expert in the home improvement store told me that the way to cut it was to score the board with a utility knife until the board breaks. That worked, but after numerous passes with the utility knife and not getting a straight cut, it left me wondering if there is a better way.

Can this material be cut with a table saw or perhaps a circular saw with a rip fence placed along the line where I want to cut?
