Neither. Saws will crack the plexiglas. Use a very sharp razor knife.
Better to get it cut to size when you buy it if possible

Peace,
Bob

Repobob is right on. You want to use a utility knife and score the plexiglass as deeply as possible. Having a metal straight-edge really helps to make the multiple passes required (with a utility knife) to score the stuff well. Once scored, bend the plexiglass and it should break cleanly.

I recommend getting it cut to size at the hardware store.

I use as rotozip tool. If you have a dremel tool you can get rotozip blades for it. Cuts damn near anything, but metal.
