Default Cutting laminate countertop

I am looking to cut a straight line on laminate (known as mica) countertop.

In the past, I would turn it upside down and tape the nice side with tape. Then I clamped down a piece of wood for reference on the back-end and saw it

What is the best method?

Thanks,
tntrac

There are more complicated methods out there but that is the easiest way. It produces some of the best results too.
