BB30's are about as easy as it gets. You can use a headset press, or borrow my ghetto press (16mm threaded rod with fender washers), or even use a vise or C-clamp. The fiber-resin type cups just go right in. Brush a little grease around the shell and press away, finish with a couple whacks with a dead blow. It's really hard to mess them up, but remember some (GXP for example) have a smaller bearing ID on the non-drive side.

Velodoc has a Park Headset press that works nicely.

"fiber resin" bearings is PF30 not BB30. BB30 bearings press directly into the frame.
