"A straight 2"x4" clamped to the plywood can serve as an edge guide." ^^^^^^^^^^
Where does one find such a beast? The guy at the BORG said that straight tubafores were all made of unobtainium :)

Well . . . right. But if you want really straight circular saw cuts get one of the aluminum cutting guides on the market (you can joint the 2x4 to get a straight edge but it probably won't be straight for long). Take care setting up and running the saw and you'll be amazed how straight you can get it.

MDF comes quite straight on factory edges.
I tried this after reading it somewhere, and I like it a lot: rip off a strip of MDF 3" or so wide. Cut some 1/4" plywood 12" wide. Nail and glue the strip onto the plywood, face-to-face, with one set of edges coplanar. Do this so that the factory edge from the MDF is on the inside of the newly fabricated guide.
Then, using the MDF as a guide, rip the plywood with your circular saw. Make sure the wide side of your saw shoe is against the MDF, not the narrow side. When you're done, you have a saw guid thate allows you to cut without measuring to offset for the saw shoe. Just mark your work, and clamp the guide down so the edge of the plywood is on the cut line. The blade will go right there.
