Cutting skirting boards

I have some oak veneer mdf skirting i need to fit.
I have a chop saw which I was planning to use for the internal and external corners but it was suggested to me to use a coping saw for the internal corners.
Is this the best way or is the chop saw equally as good?
If coping saw, how do I do it - assume trace out the profile of the skirting on the perpendicular skirting and simple cut out with the saw?
Thanks in advance.

use a bit of masking tape on the wood before cutting
Probably best to look at a YouTube video to see about the internal cuts
I mitred external and scribed internal. YouTube is your friend!

Thanks all. I will take a tour of YouTube and the link from foxhole and revert back with any questions. Cheers
