Strike a balance between owning your work and knowing when to ask for help. It is impossible to offer more concrete advice on this, other than to say things will be moving at an extremely fast pace and you don't want to fall in the category of constantly asking your associate for help (thereby impeding their work flow) or sitting on something you don't know how to do for too long (so that when the associate asks for your contribution to the deck, you are not empty handed). Make sure to schedule chats with people you work with throughout the summer for feedback - it is the best (and only) way to know for certain how you're performing.
