Private transfer if you have the money or bus if you don't. For the bus buy tickets at any tour agent in Phnom Penh. Virak Buntham is apparently the best bus company to use for the trip. Will bring you all the way to ferry pier.

You can easily book in Cambodia a through ticket for about $28, which uses the Had Lek (Thai)/(Cham Yeam (Khmer)

The bus (Virak, as Ian says gets the best press) from Phnom Phen leaves at around 7.30am and it will take all day, regardless of what you are told. There is a change from bus to minibus at the border and there will be some tedious waiting about whilst you do it, but you you will make the last ferry. Check that the ferry ticket price is included when you buy the ticket in Cambodia. The minibus driver will offer you 100-150bt option of delivery to your resort door on Koh Chang, which saves you having to muck about with the share taxis.

It will always get there, barring those things in insurance policies which we don't get covered like floods and prestilence.
